Can I use any flavor of cake mix?

Can I freeze cookies once they’re baked?
You can! Just let the cookies cool down all the way and then pop them into the freezer. They’ll freeze for later and you’ll be able to enjoy them sometime again in the near future.
Why did my cookies fall apart?
More than likely, you baked the cookies too long. The other reason that cookies may crumble is that they’re too dry. Adding a bit more of a binding agent may be what the mixture needs.
