You can freeze these cookies!
These do freeze great. You can mix them together and then scoop them onto your cookies sheet. Then freeze solid and place in a freezer bag. Now you have cookies to bake whenever you want fresh baked cookies.
You can also freeze them after you bake them. If you can avoid eating the whole batch you can make them last even longer by freezing them.
