How to Flash Freeze Cookie Dough
Love warm homemade cookies but hate making a mess in your kitchen?
Here's how to make the dough ahead of time, flash freeze the cookies, and then you can whip up a batch whenever you'd like!
You'll want to start by mixing up your favorite cookie dough (my favorite is this Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe – the best EVER).
Then drop the cookies in spoonfuls onto baking sheet (I place them close together since they won't bake together on a sheet, you're just using the sheets to freeze them.)
Next, place your cookie dough in freezer while on baking sheets and freeze the dough until completely frozen.
Last, remove the frozen cookie dough from freezer and place into large plastic bags or plastic storage container. (I've read that you should wrap them with in plastic or wax paper first, but have never done that and the dough has been just fine.)
You can store flash frozen cookies for up to 3 months – just be sure to label with the date when you place them in the freezer.
Once you're ready to bake, place on parchment paper and bake according to original cookie dough recipe. Enjoy!
(See how I recently whipped up a triple batch of chocolate chip cookies before flash freezing over HERE. Yikes!)
