DIY convenience cookie dough

Maybe doing this has already occurred to you, but when I thought of it (last summer).... I felt like a genius! I like to make a batch of cookie dough, put the scoops on a cookie sheet and freeze them for a few hours. then I toss them all into a freezer bag and can pull them out whenever I want them! Why so fabulous?

  1. Cheaper than buying pre-made refrigerator dough
  2. You have the luxury of only cooking 2 or 4, so you don't eat them all!
  3. You can have hot gooey cookies at a moments notice (really impresses a last minute guest)
  4. If you are only cooking a couple, you could do it in the toaster oven and save energy!

Update: For the Nestle’ Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe, go to Very Best Baking.com. That way you can buy the cheaper chips but still have the yummiest cookies.

5. When you have a craving for cookie dough, you can just pop a couple out and eat!

Okay, I lied, I would take the whole bag out of the freezer and chow down. Having a bag of bite size cookie dough in my freezer would be dangerous business! Love the idea!

Andy totally eats the cookie dough everytime he walks by the freezer! I won't eat it if I never eat one. If I do it once, I'm screwed.
