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.
