I often get requests for cookies and baked goods but sometimes don't have time to prepare them so this seems like an ideal solution. Also, there was a NYT article where several world class bakers noted that chilling chocolate chip cookie dough yields a superior result. Tonight I made a batch, half was popped in the freezer for just an hour and baked, the rest frozen for later. The batch baked tonight was superb with the brown sugar giving that classic part-crispy-part chewy texture. I did find the recipe needed more chips but that's a matter of personal taste. Updated 9/19: Baked off my frozen batch and they were different but also superb. The cookies were crisper on the outside with a delightful slightly chewy brown sugary interior. The crowd loved 'em.

Making extra dough and freezing it is the only way to go! These were great, easy and they make a ton. I'm going to make them again in a month or two, stockpile in my freezer and use for easy holiday gifts.
