JS5981 wrote in recently with a follow-up question about freezing cookie dough:
So can you bake them straight from the freezer or do you have to let the dough thaw?
Hi, JS5981.Thanks for writing in again! I freeze cookie dough all the time. It holds up really well in the freezer for a couple weeks or so, and the baked-off cookies taste as great as the ones you bake with fresh dough. The night before you plan to bake, move the frozen dough to the fridge to thaw. Then move the thawed dough to the kitchen counter for a few hours to come to room temperature before baking. Simple as that!
There's no harm in baking straight-from-the-freezer dough. The cookies will taste good, but they won't spread out much.
