A little while ago, Marya, a reader and real-life recipe user, wrote in with a question about the freezability of my recipes. Here's what she had to say after making and freezing batches of my XXX Cranberry Cookies and Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies:
Hi! Well, as of yesterday both batches of cookies were gone. I froze two giant ziploc bags of cookie dough, and we hardly made any actual cookies after the initial day of baking (a dozen of each). We just warmed some dough up in the microwave and ate it like that. And baking two different kinds at once is DANGEROUS. because you can't just have one, you need to have one of each, but really who only has one cookie at a time? So it was most often two of each kind, and dang it was good. I can't wait to bake another recipe--although it will have to wait until after the new year! I think I will stick strictly to your recipe this time instead of adding a bunch of stuff like I usually do.
Hi, Marya! It just dawned on me that I have a sandwich bag's worth of leftover Coconut, Walnut, and Chocolate dough hanging out in my freezer from my last round of baking. Thanks for jogging my memory! I've known it for a while, but you've prooved it: My recipes freeze really, really well.
I'm so glad you and your sister Em are real-life recipe users. I love hearing from you both. Happy baking. And have a happy New Year's!
