You spend so much time preparing your Christmas and holiday baking to get it perfect and now, you are wondering how to keep all of this delicious holiday baking fresh. It's a great idea to start making your holiday baking in November and then storing it in the freezer to bring out during those busy days.
Treating guests and family to freshly baked treats just makes us feel good, doesn't it? There are smiles all around when you see a table full of homemade goodies in all their yummy glory. Serving your treats freshly baked from the oven is ideal, but we all know that isn't an option all the time, especially when you have lots of parties planned.
Glass storage is the best way to save your baking. Here are some containers that are freezer safe and will keep your baking fresh & ready for company. Time to throw away your cheap plastics and store your food in durable glass.

This is our personal favorite because of the size. This large glass dishware will fit so many cookies and bars! We love this glass container because it can be used in the freezer and it also doubles as a casserole baking dish. These are airtight and stack in the freezer beautifully due to the nonslip lids. It is made of premium grade Borosilicate glass, which is quite thick. Its premium price is well worth the years of use. Measurements - 12 x 8 x 2.5 inches. Huge!

When you are trying to get ahead by making large batches of Christmas baking, storage becomes a top priority. And to keep everything fresh, that usually involves freezing. Here's how to keep your flavors perfect.
Step 1. Before Freezing, All Baking At Room Temperature
Before freezing, be sure all of your baking is at room temperature. This is critical so that ice crystals don't form and ruin your hard work.
Step 2. Line Baking Tray With Parchment Paper
Line a baking sheet with parchment using pre-cut sheets here on Amazon and place your baking in rows as close as you can (making sure that nothing is touching), then freeze.
Step 3. Transfer The Baking To Airtight Glass Containers
After everything is frozen solid you are ready to transfer the baking into glass storage containers on Amazon with tightly sealed lids. Stack your baking and line each row with parchment. This should keep your cookies and bars good to go for up to 3 months.
Step 4. Label Your Baking
Freezers can get pretty packed. Labels are our best friends. Instead of guessing if something is still ok, or what kind of baking is inside the containers, write everything you need to know on a freeze- safe label. Be sure to write down any notes or instructions.
