Slice & Bake Chocolate Chip Cookies

My BFs mom lent me a book called Make-A-Mix. It's got tons of recipes for homemade mixes that you can store for later use. In their chapter Freezer Refrigerator Mixes, I found these chocolate chip cookies that you just roll into logs and freeze for later use. Here's my slightly modified recipe. This makes about 5 batches of cookies.

2 cups butter or margarine
1-1/3 cups sugar
1-2/3 cups brown sugar, packed
2 Tbsp vanilla extract
4 eggs
5-1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2-1/2 cups chocolate chips

In a bowl cream butter/margarine, sugar and brown sugar. Beat in vanilla and eggs until light a fluffy. In another bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. stir flour mixture into egg mixture until combined. Add chocolate chips.

The original recipe said that this made 4 batches but I baked a batch and had enough dough leftover to make 4 rolls of freezer-dough.

If you wet your hands first, it's easier to make the rolls. Divide dough into 5 equal pieces and place on plastic wrap or wax paper. Roll into 8 to 10 inch log rolls. Date and place into freezer in a freezer safe bag. Use within 6 months.

To bake after freezing:
Thaw slightly. Preheat oven to 350*F. Cut into 1/4-inch slices. Place on cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes or until browned around the edges.

I really need to try making these, because i never have the time to make up the dough and bake. This way it's already made up
