Yes and you will love how much time this saves!

I have a nice freezer tip for you. This one is VERY nice because it is a HUGE time saver.

Next time you make cookies from scratch, make a double batch and then freeze your left overs before cooking. Then you have premade cookies ready to bake.

Now, you can have fresh baked cookies with no effort. I love it, because you can easily bake just 6 cookies if you want, instead of 24 – bake only want you want!

I love this!! Now, we can have fresh baked cookies after dinner. I just pop them in the oven right before we eat. I am planning on making several batches of cookies this weekend just for the freezer. Enjoy!

Another tip is to freeze the cookies once you bake them.  I like to flash freeze the freshly baked cookies once completely cooled and then separate them with waxed paper in a freezer bag or container.

Freezing baked cookies is very simple. You won’t have any freezer burn as long as you make sure the cookies are wrapped good.

  1. Great question – this post is on how to freezer cookie dough so you can easily make 2 or 12 cookies at any time. You can freezer baked cookies as well. I allow them to cool completely. Then I place them on a baking sheet and put them in the freezer for at least 1 hour and then transfer them to freezer bags after that time. Just defrost when you’re ready to enjoy them!

  2. 5 stars
    This is great! I like to freeze my chocolate chip cookie dough, but I’ve always done it in one ugly, messy lump! I will definitely be trying this method next time. Thanks!
