7 Frozen Cookie Dough: A Great Gift!

My mom has everything she needs.  If she needs anything, she buys it and doesn't wait for a "special occasion."

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!

Choose a baking sheet that will fit in your freezer.

Line it with plastic wrap.

Drop cookies onto plastic wrap.

No need to space them apart...

One batch of these chocolate chip cookies fit nicely onto one baking sheet.

The peanut butter cookies were dropped with a cookie scoop and spaced a little further apart to allow smashing with the tines of a fork.

Put trays of cookie dough into your freezer until firm,  about two hours.

Remove cookie dough from the trays and put into freezer safe bags that are labelled with the cookie, date, oven temperature, time and any other special directions: greased/ungreased baking sheet.

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:
