My family loves fresh baked cookies, but I’m not always in the mood to go through the long process of baking an entire batch of cookies. That’s why I freeze cookie dough!
I have found that almost any drop-type cookie dough freezes well. I form the cookies on baking sheets… making balls of dough or slightly flattened spoonfuls of dough as specified in the recipe I am using. Once I have filled the baking sheets, I put them in the freezer until the cookie dough has solidly frozen.
I transfer the frozen cookie dough to plastic bags (I double-bag them) and leave them in the freezer… until the next time someone has a craving for fresh-baked cookies.
I bake the FROZEN cookie dough at the normal baking temperatures, but allow extra baking time.
