Freezing Cookie Dough

Did you know that you can freeze many different types of cookie dough and bake as needed?  It's so easy and handy to have on hand!  I have included with any cookie recipe you find on this blog, directions for freezing if I have successfully been able to do so.  If I have tried freezing the recipe and it is not successful, that's noted too.
  • Mix up the cookie dough {chocolate chip, oatmeal, and oatmeal pudding all work very well}
  • With a cookie scoop {or small ice cream scoop} put cookie dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper.  Fill it full, just make sure they don't touch.
  • Put the baking sheet in the freezer for 2 - 3 hours, until frozen solid.
  • Take the cookie balls off the sheet and put into freezer safe containers or freezer safe bags.
  • Label with the type of cookie, what temperature they should be baked at, and for how many minutes.  **The rule of thumb is to decrease the oven temperature by 25 - 50 degrees {I find 300 degrees Fahrenheit works for most cookies} from the original recipe and double the baking time.
  • The cookie dough balls are good for 30 - 45 days.  
  • After they've been frozen and then baked, they only stay fresh for about 2 days.  It works out great though because you can bake them as needed!
