Shirley replied to yesterday's post about freezing cookie dough and had a really good tip for all you bakers out there who like to plan ahead:
When I freeze cookie dough I use my cookie scooper and make balls like I would when baking the cookies. I put them on a cookie sheet and once they are frozen I put them in a zip lock bag then return the bag to the freezer. I take them out when I want fresh baked cookies. This method has worked well for me, and my mother-in-law loves to have them in her freezer.
Hi, Shirley. Scooping and then freezing individually portioned cookie dough balls is an excellent idea. What a great daughter-in-law you are. Thanks for writing in and sharing your cookie wisdom!
