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!!
