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.
Very good cookies. I will use this recipe from now on.
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.
These were really good cookies, I will be making this again. I just made 1 dozen, just to test it.. now I have to make more. :-)
I used this recipe for the chocolate chip cookie base of Chocolate Chip Cookie Cream Cheese Bars. It was the perfect compliment to it and very delicious.
This is a wonderful recipe, I probably added 3 cups of choc chips and 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts. I made 3 dozen good sized cookies without freezing the dough and then I made 3 rolls out of the remainder. This was my first attempt at making cookie dough to freeze and I'm so pleased how easy it was. Thank you for a lovely cookie recipe and everyone loved them. Will be making them again soon and love that I have some in the freezer ready to go.........chris
How awesome is this??! I can send home home-made ready to bake cookies with my "kids" and they get the pleasure of smelling them bake w/o the fuss! Thanks! Makwa
These come out very well. I made a half recipe so I got 2 "logs" in the freezer. Great for late night or last minute snacks.
