Most Sunday evenings, there are family members that come to visit my mom...to see Grandma and Grandpa. Part of the fun of visiting is sitting around the kitchen table, having a treat. Sometimes, it's cake, ice cream, or a glass of homemade grape juice. More often than not, it will be a cookie that she made earlier in the day.
I made frozen cookie dough when I was a working, full-time mom. These were great to pull out at the last minute and have as an after school treat. You can even mix/match different cookies, or put four cookies in a toaster oven. What's better than a warm, fresh from the oven chocolate chip cookie and milk?
I knew that a gift of frozen cookie dough would be great for my mom ~ or any mom!
Line it with plastic wrap.
Drop cookies onto plastic wrap.
No need to space them apart...
Put trays of cookie dough into your freezer until firm, about two hours.
Return bags to the freezer until ready to use.
These are ready-to-bake. No need to increase the baking times.
These are the cookie doughs I made for her:
