Ice Cube Tray to Freeze Cookie Dough November 12, 2012

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!
