You can even freeze them before you bake them, just follow the recipe and after you have completed the last step before baking it just wrap them in Sarah wrap and put in a freezer bag, label and date them.
When you are ready to bake them just take them out the night before put in your fridge to thaw and after work just pop in a 350° oven and bake one or two for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown. EnjoyAdd to Favourites
