FREEZER COOKIE DOUGH

Making freezer cookie dough is the best idea EVER!  You can whip out a plate of fresh, hot cookies to serve to your guests or family in a matter of minutes when you have these in your freezer.

Preparing freezer cookie dough balls ahead of time allows you to bake fresh, homemade cookies in minutes with no mess.Last week I had a rare day when my “Things To Do List” was actually short, so I decided to bake some cookies.  As I started setting out all of my ingredients, I had a brilliant idea!  Why not just mix up some freezer cookie dough balls instead.

I had all of the ingredients out, so if I did this, I would really only have 1 mess. 

I love to bake cookies, and do it often, so this sounded wonderful to me.

On this day I mixed up Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodles,  Mexican Wedding, and Butterscotch Toffee Choc Chip.

I placed them on parchment lined baking sheets, and placed them in the freezer until hardened.

The bag was labeled, and I stored them in my freezer.

I was thinking how handy these will be to pull out and bake
if I have company, need something for a bake sale, or am just craving a fresh, hot, homemade cookie with my tea.

They only lasted one day and my brilliant plan came in to action.  That evening, my daughter called and a bad storm had left them with no power.  Her family came to my house for showers. 

I warmed up some leftovers from dinner and baked a couple pans of my cookie dough balls. 

My grand- children were happy to have a plate of cookies and some milk.

Four days later, a group of us were getting together to do
some cleaning at the men’s hunting cabin.  I knew there would be children there too, so into the oven went a few more bags of the cookie dough balls.

This week I baked the remaining ones and took them to a
family going through a tough medical crisis.

I always bake a lot of cookies during the holidays, and I will do this again for that, but the past few weeks have shown me that you can handle good times and bad times with a plate of fresh, hot, homemade cookies. 

I am going to keep doing this when I have a free day, and always be prepared with a variety of these cookie dough balls in my freezer.

  1. This is brilliant! I do it with ground beef for hamburgers. It has been so expensive lately that when it is on sale I buy 5 or 10 pounds and portion them into balls and put them 2 to a baggy. Today I took out the last 2 baggies as Amara is coming for dinner! Hope it goes on sale again soon!
