Make-A-Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies (revisited)

I like making things in large batches so that I can freeze/store them away for later (who doesn't?). Well I think that the freezer cookie dough is wonderful but with the recent salmonella scares, it definitely not worth it. In an older post I mentioned this book I got from my BF's mom called Make-A-Mix: 306 recipes to save time and money. I LOVE this book!!

I wanted to make chocolate chip cookies to take to my BFF for her birthday so I made this recipe and made extras. Originally, the book says to roll the extra dough into logs to slice. Well since I have to be different I tried making my own freezer cookie dough ball packages.

Place extra dough balls made with a medium cookie scoop on wax paper and place in the freezer to harden. Then, transfer to sandwich baggies. I got 12 dough balls in 1 standard size Ziplock sandwich baggie ^_^ The total recipe made about 6.5 dozen cookies. I froze 4.5 dozen shown below. My BF likes to eat the dough raw anyway so he likes the easy access :)

Refer to this post for the recipe ^_^ Now if I want to bake cookies I can just pull out a baggie, separate the dough balls and toss them onto a cookie sheet. I like being lazy :)

That is a GREAT idea! I have frozen cookie dough before, but just in a container. Then I had to scoop like a chump to make cookies. LOL!

Next time, I am freezing your way.

Great idea- and the book sounds good too. I'm also trying to watch the grocery budget a bit closer.

Thanks for following my blog.
