In our house it's always cookie time. This summer I hit on the idea of making up batches of cookie dough and baking just enough cookies to satisfy our sweet tooth and then scooping the remainder of the dough onto a cookie sheet and freezing it. I know this isn't an original idea but I had never done it before so it was new to me!
This allows me to have an assortment of cookies in the freezer at any given time and quick easy homemade treats that I can pop in the oven without having to spend time in the kitchen on a hot summer afternoon. You can find my favorite PB Cookie recipe here.
I write the baking instructions on the bag and let them defrost before baking. It doesn't get easier than that. Also, this prevents the cookies from sitting in the cookie jar and calling me to come eat them. Although that frozen cookie dough isn't too bad either... Please don't send the raw egg police after me!
