Why didn’t I think of this before? At the bed and breakfast, we make huge batches of cookie dough, and if we don’t need it all that day, we freeze it for a later date. It has worked with every dough I’ve tried, and it’s a huge time-saver.
But for some reason, it never occurred to me to try it at home. Until last night. We both needed a sweet fix, and we were both craving chocolate chip cookies. So I made my favorite recipe, then divided the dough. I baked a few, and rolled the rest into balls and plopped them into freezer bags. I figured it would be easier to break off a few cookies whenever we had the urge if they were already separated (as opposed to tossing a big lump of dough in the freezer). Now, even though I’m enjoying my cookies, I’m excited to know there are more ready and waiting in the freezer. I need to do more of this freezing stuff.
