Freezing tips- line a baking sheet with parchment or a Silpat. Prepare the dough as usual, then portion out the cookies onto the baking sheet using a cookie scoop. Since we are freezing and not baking the cookies, you can crowd the cookies close together, but do not let them touch. Transfer the entire baking sheet to the freezer, and freeze for 15 minutes. Then, using your hands, roll into perfect balls. Place back into the freezer and freeze for 3-4 hours, or until the dough is frozen completely. Remove the baking sheet from the freezer and transfer the dough balls to a storage bag.
To bake from frozen- just set the cookie dough out on the counter while your oven heats. Then place the dough on a baking sheet and bake for 1-2 minutes longer than the recipe directs, keeping an eye on the cookies during those last few minutes so that you can see when they are ready to go.
