    Linda's Busy Kitchen's Note:

    This versatile cookie dough recipe is one not to be without! Great anytime, but especially wonderful during the holidays when you can make up 1 basic dough and use it to make so many different kinds of cookies for your cookie trays for the holidays and gift giving! Please pick the type of cookie you want to bake BEFORE you start baking, because some ingredients will vary depending on which of the 7 versions you choose. Serving Size, Preparation and baking time depends on which kind of cookie you decide to make.

      I made the peanut butter version and they came out great. A little different then normal PB cookies, they were like soft chocolate chip cookies except peanut butter flavored. I think I got about 50 cookies and baked them on 375 for 10 minutes, they came out perfect. I froze most of the dough, already portioned, for later use. I will try to bake them from frozen and see if they work out right and how long they bake for. Thanks for posting!
