For the next month, I will be sharing some of my favorite cookie recipes. I hope you will enjoy them! I thought it might be a good time for cookies, with school starting in a month or so. I have wonderful memories of coming home from school on that first day and smelling the yummy smells of hot cookies greeting me at the door. It was a great time to sit down and share how our day went. I did this with my kids, and my daughter is carrying on the tradition.
I don't make a lot of cookies these days, because there are only the two of us living here now. I was talking to my daughter, who also deals with this problem, and she told me that when she makes a batch of cookies, she bakes a few, and then forms the rest into logs, wraps them in plastic wrap - then foil, then freezes them. Later, when she wants a few hot homemade cookies, she simply pulls a log out, slices off a few cookies, and bakes them. (You just bake them a little longer because they start out frozen) I love this idea! Now we can have cookies without fearing that we will eat the entire batch at once!
My friend Melinda commented on my blog about how she freezes the dough. She said that she forms the cookies, freezes them on cookie sheets, then when frozen she puts them in a zip-lock bag and can pull them out one at a time - all ready to bake!
You can put them close together on the cookie sheet to freeze
