cookies!!

Some days, a chocolate chip cookie is in order!!  I use the BEST recipe.  It's from a cookbook that my ward (church congregation) put together when I lived in Utah.  So yum!

The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies (by Nick Cutler)
1 lb margarine or butter                        1 tsp salt
2 c. brown sugar                     1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 c. white sugar                                  3 eggs
6 c. flour                                         2 tsp vanilla
6c. chocolate chips                                            

Cream wet ingredients and add dry ingredients.  Mix well.  Add chocolate chips.  Drop onto greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350* from 10-12 minutes.



I usually cut the recipe in half and am still left with about 4 dozen cookies or so. That is a lot of cookies for me to eat.  My family only eats 1-2 cookies a piece and I can't resist them and always eat way too many. 



So unless I share with the neighbors or (gasp) throw out stale cookies, I usually have about this much dough left after cookies my 2 batches.  So I decided to start freezing it!


I scoop it onto a cookie sheet.


Then pop the entire thing into the freezer.


After they are frozen solid, I put them into a freezer bag and stick that in the freezer. 


 So when the next time a craving for choco chip cookies hits, I'm prepared.  The frozen cookies can be placed directly onto a cookie sheet and put into the oven.  Just add a few extra minutes to the cook time.   Very handy to have on hand for a last minute treat!!
