Freezing cookies

There's nothing quite like the smell of hot cookies out of the oven.  If you want to prolong your enjoyment of that one batch, try this.  Simply make your batch of dough up as normal.  Scoop out what you want to make (We do about two cookie sheets worth the first time).   Whatever cookie dough is left, pop into a freezer container or bag.  When you get that creeping "I want cookies" urge again, simply plop it onto the counter until it is defrosted and use as normal.  I'll generally pull it out sometime in the morning and leave it in the refrigerator until after dinner, then bake as usual.  Who needs to buy premade cookie mix when yours are cheaper and tastier?  Try it out.  Besides...it'll keep your family from wolfing down a whole batch in a two or three day marathon!

  1. Awsome idea. The only prolem comes when you go to make a batch and find there's only enough dough for one or two cookies. The household cookie-dough mouse has struck again! (When I bake cookies, I sometimes freeze some dough just for him - makes my hubby happy.)
