Fresh, Hot Cookies Anytime

Have you discovered the easiest way to have homemade cookies, right out of the oven, in just a matter of minutes?

First, mix up your favorite cookie dough.  We use the Nestle Toll House recipe most often.  Sometimes we use mint and dark chocolate chips and other times we prefer the semi-sweet chunks.  My son, ZJ, calls the minty cookies "Dragon's Breath Cookies".

Next, use a scoop to make uniformly sized balls of dough.  Place them on a cookie sheet and freeze them for ten minutes in the freezer.

While the cookies are freezing, we clean up the kitchen.

Place frozen cookie balls into a labeled plastic freezer bag.  They will not stick together.

Now, anytime a craving hits or company drops by, you can bake them directly from frozen and serve melty, warm cookies in minutes.


  1. I love this idea and the creative name for the mint cookies. :)

  2. I just did some of these. I wanted cookies for this weekend, but didn't want to spend the whole weekend in the kitchen. Big time saver.

  3. Serena - my son made up the name to go along with a book report for school. The book was Erec Rex and the cookies were a hit! Now they are a regular at our house.
    Lee - Yes only do the dishes once but have cookies many different times.


I savor your comments and links!
