how-to | freeze cookie dough

During this Christmas season, lots and lots of cookies will be made and consumed.  If your family is like mine, we make our more difficult cookies around this time of year (the ones you have to chill, roll out, etc).  Why not freeze that cookie dough so you can have those cookies throughout the month or over the the next few months?  Exactly!  So here's a short tutorial on how to freeze cookie dough

Step 1:  Make dough according to directions.

Step 2:  Line a platter or baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.

Step 3:  Scoop dough out with cookie scoop onto lined sheet.

Step 4:  Allow to freeze overnight.

Step 5:  Label a storage bag with cookie dough type and date.

Step 6:  Store up to 3 months in the freezer.

BONUS!!!  Give out cookie dough as a Christmas gift (especially to those who don't like to bake)!  Just get some nice gift bags and make tags for the temperature and time to bake them.
