How to Make Frozen Cookie Dough. It's the Simplest Way to have Fresh Cookies. No Joke

I love the cookies. Well.  At least most cookies.  I have 2 favorites.  Well, 3 technically.  The first is the cookie that I don't have to make.....

Ok.  Just Kidding.  Kinda.

Another one that I love are the Sugarhouse Cookies. They are Amazing!  I can't buy them, or I eat them all.  They are for sure my favorite ones out there that are store bought.  Along the same lines, there is a bakery local to me called Cocoa Bean.  They have ginourmous sugar cookies.  To say that I am in an understatement.

I can't buy either cookie cause I horde them and don't share and I eat them ALL... Every. Single. One.

All By Myself.  {selfish much?!?}

 My 2nd favorite cookie are Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies.  I love a lot.

The most amazing mixer...Bosch Universal Mixer. I seriously don't know how to bake without it. Bread. Yes! Cookies? Yes! Mashed Potatoes? Perfect everytime!

And you'll need a cookie scoop to make the perfect balls. Don't forget it!

But I also never have time to make them.

Thats a problem...right.

Especially when you volunteer to bring a treat somewhere.  You only need 1 dozen cookies.

What recipe only makes 1 dozen cookies?

Not mine!

It makes 3 dozen.

So what do I do with the remaining dozen {besides eat  Again}

I freeze the remaining cookie dough.  OR if I'm lucky I have some frozen cookie dough in the freezer already.  Not likely.  Cause I also love cookie dough.

Its no wonder I can't loose weight.  I have a problem!

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

chocolate chips
3 cups oats
1 3/4 cups flour

Cream the first 4 ingredients together. Then add the next 3. Followed by the oats, then desired amount of chocolate chips. Then add the flour slowly making sure to not add to much. I like to add the first cup in all at once and then slowly add the next 3/4 cup until I get the right consistency. If you add to much flour then your cookies will be hard.

Bake cookies at 350 for 8-10 minutes. I bake mine so that they are just underdone. Kinda like medium well for a hamburger. I do that because when you take things from the oven they will still cook as they are cooling off. Then my cookies end up being done just right and won't get hard.

Now is the fun part I like to bake 1 pan of cookie dough and then freeze the rest so that I am not pigging out on cookies for 3 days straight (that is seriously how good they are).

How to Freeze Cookie Dough

I like to use my pampered chef cookie scoop thing. It makes perfect little balls for cookies. Without this handy little tool I am lost when it comes to making cookies.

Then I put those little balls of cookie dough on a baking sheet as close together as I can get them. Then I freeze them until hard. Then I put them in a freezer quart bag.
Cookie Dough Bits for the FreezerWhen I am ready to cook some of the cookies I put however many on a cookie sheet that I want to bake and if I have time I will let them thaw a bit. If not then I bake at 325 for 10-12 minutes.

I love the idea of scooping them before freezing. I usually just freeze them in a big ball and then have to bake the entire batch. This way I could make just enough for the week.
