Making Freezer Cookie Dough
The secret to my success. Pre scooping the dough with my world famous cookie scoop! Have you ever tried to scoop frozen cookie dough?! That just doesn't work. I just scoop the cookie dough onto the cookie sheet and pop in the freezer for about 30 minutes until they are good and frozen. Then, I bag them into quart size Ziplocs. I label each Ziploc with the type of cookie, bake temp, and bake time so I don't get confused. I just pop them back in the freezer and store them until we are ready for a cookie.
You can pull out one cookie or an entire pan full: the choice is yours. Preheat and bake as you normally would. NO THAWING NECESSARY. You may need to increase the baking time by 1-2 minutes. That is it. You will never buy store bought pre-made cookie dough again.
