I love to bake cookies! There is nothing better than a freshly baked warm chocolate chip cookie with a glass of milk. The problem I have with making homemade cookies is that the recipe yields dozens of cookies that I don’t really want to eat up in just a few days. I’m not a huge fan of cookies that are a few days old. They just don’t have the same fresh flavor!
I found a way to make a batch of homemade cookies last much longer! I saw a pin on Pinterest that gave me the idea to freeze cookie dough in an ice cube tray. I baked a few sheets of cookies and then spooned the rest of the cookie dough into an ice cube tray or two. I let the dough freeze for a few hours and then placed the frozen cubes in a ziploc bag. I stored the bag of cookie dough in the freezer. Now, when my family is craving cookies, I already have the dough ready to go. I just added a minute or two to the baking time since the dough was frozen. I’m very pleased with the results of this experiment!
