Frozen Cookie Dough Balls
Some people go shopping to prepare for the upcoming school year, but I like to stock my freezer with frozen cookie dough balls. Not only do these little gems save me when I need snacks for the lunchbox, but when the last minute emails come in requesting edibles for the classroom party, I am prepared.
I made a variety of favourite doughs (chocolate chip and oatmeal), and portioned them out evenly using my handy ice cream scoop. I place the dough balls on a cookie sheet, which I then place in the freezer. Once the dough balls are mostly frozen, I transfer them to a Ziploc bag, label them, and then have several dozen cookies ready for baking and entertaining.
I like having a plethora of cookies to choose from, and making the dough was really a cinch. You’ll be happy to know that baking them is even easier!
