The BEST Homemade Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Is there anything better than warm cookies right of the oven? My boys are obsessed with my homemade chocolate chip cookies, but it's not always convenient to serve them straight from the oven. That's why I love having frozen balls of chocolate chip cookie dough "ready to go" in the freezer. If you haven't tried this little trick, you are missing out!


I start by mixing up my favourite chocolate chip cookie dough recipe. You can find the full recipe here.




I use a cookie scoop to place balls of cookie dough onto a cookie sheet covered with a sheet of parchment paper. Then, I cover the cookie balls with a piece of plastic wrap, and place them in the freezer until frozen... about 4 hours or overnight

When the cookie balls are completely frozen, they can be placed in a freezer bag until you are ready to bake them. (Cookie dough can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months if it is wrapped well.)




When you are ready to bake the cookies, just place the frozen cookie balls on a cookie sheet, and bake like you normally would... adding a couple of minutes to the cooking time. They are soooo delicious!




I love this process for making chocolate chip cookies, but you could use it with other recipes too. 

It's so wonderful having cookie dough in the freezer "ready to go". It's perfect for surprise visitors, after school treats, and school lunches.

Give it a try. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
