Frequently Asked Questions
Can I freeze bread dough?
After taking dough out of a breadmaker for breadsticks, can half of the dough be frozen for another time?
Yes, you can freeze the dough of most yeast breads. The exception would be if the dough contained such foods as cottage cheese, raw fruit or vegetables because they do not freeze well and when thawed will break down and become watery thus ruining the bread. The shaped dough should be frozen without allowing it to rise. Freeze the bread dough in sturdy, airtight plastic bags made specifically for freezing. Frozen dough should be used within 3 months for best results.
When ready to use, place frozen dough in (greased or ungreased as the specific recipe requires) baking pan and thaw slowly in the refrigerator overnight. The next day place pan in a warm area so the dough can rise as needed before baking.
