Works For Me Wednesday

This week what is working for me is freezing cookie dough. Have you ever done that? It just makes life so much easier down the road. I will usually make a double batch since I have all the stuff out any way. This way you can bake some now and have some for later. All you have to do is roll you dough into serving size balls. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper, set them on there and freeze for about an hour. Then simply take them off the sheet and put them in a freezer ziploc and Voila! Cookies for later! These are great for unexpected company. When you want to you use them. Simply unthaw them (which doesn't take that long) and pop them in the oven for the designated time for that cookie recipe.
This particular recipe freezes very well. It's my Peanut Butter Cup Cookie recipe.I hope you give it a shot. I think once you do this you'll be hooked. It's better than buying the rolls of cookie dough at the store!!!

  1. Hi Kim - I love this idea of freezing cookie dough! Have you tried it with chocolate chip dough?
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. Kimmy,

    I will have to try it! My guys love peanut butter cookies!!

    2 more days !!! 2 more days!!

    Hugs to you sweet friend!

  3. Great idea, Kim! I'm going to do this when the grands get older so there will *always* be cookies at Nonnie and Paw Paw's house!

  4. that really is a great idea. You are right, why not do a double batch and what better way to treat company or use as agift, some freshly baked cookies. I love how simple, easy, quick and SMART this idea is. Why haven't I done this before?

  5. Fabulous idea! And YUM - I'll take that bag off your hands right now - LOL!

  6. Fabulous idea. I may have to try that if we have any leftovers next week.

  7. I am so impressed with your great idea! When my kids went to public school they always sold the frozen cookie dough ($14 a pound or something ridiculous)... so we know frozen cookie dough works. I just never thought of freezing my own in cookie-size pieces. Love it!

    PS I popped in off a Word for Wednesday because I loved your blog name. Blessings from my homestead to yours!

  8. I do this all the time! I made and froze about 75% of my holiday cookie dough in November so it wouldn't take me forever to bake all the cookies in December. On Monday I easily baked 6 different types of cookies to send to my husband's offices in a pretty short time. I just thawed, baked, and decorated. I'll pull out the last few frozen chunks of dough this weekend to make with the kids to have for Christmas.

  9. Sounds good to me! We'll have to try this.

  10. I have quiet a few icebox cookies and freezer cookie recipes too. I love having cookies made ahead of time and available..now if I only actually made them.. I'd be set.. LOL

  11. Wayyyyyyyyyy cool! love it!!! Will be checking out that new cooking blog soon too!

  12. I've done that too. I have a friend who is an excellent baker who bakes her extra large cookie batches and then freezes them. I've had some of her thawed out cookies and you'd never know they had been frozen.

  13. I love being able to freeze cookie dough. I have several batches in my freezer at home. :D


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
