Sugar cookie dough still good?
 
I made a batch of sugar cookie dough on Christmas Eve with good intentions to use it that day but never got around to it so here we are 3 days later and it's still there... do you think it's still good? I won't have time to make cookies out of it until tomorrow afternoon. I'm thinking it's OK but wanted to get a general concensus. Thanks!

I don't see this being much of a problem. Unless the eggs in the dough went bad. You might want to let it warm up a bit, and remix it before you lay them out on the baking sheet.

The carton that the eggs came out of don't expire for almost 2 weeks so I'm thinking it's probably OK.

Was it wrapped or covered with a lid, and in the fridge? If so, I would say go ahead.

I have the dough covered in the fridge :)

i am sure the cookies will be fine.

They should be fine, but when they come to room temperature, sniff them to see if you can detect any wrong odours.

They'll be fine, the store bakeries make up huge batches and take them out of the fridge daily, to make fresh baked. The dough usually lasts them a week or 2.
