This post is a bit of a fake.
I’ve posted the chocolate chip cookie recipe before, and Jen from JJ’s Kitchen has posted the storage idea already – but it was in the background to a larger recipe, so I decided that it was worth repeating – as a separate entry.
First up – the chocolate chip cookies.
This recipe has been adapted from AllRecipes.com, and these cookies really are easy and delicious;
You will need:
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/2 bag Skor bits.
I’ll be honest and say that the last three ingredients were by accident really; I mistakenly put my white chocolate chips in with my semi-sweet and they mixed together, then I had a half-eaten bag of Skor bits that were sitting there bugging me, so I decided to throw them in as well. The result is delicious, but not really a result of any culinary genius on my part.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and Skor bits. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
- Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
The recipe above will make about 9 dozen chocolate chip cookies – WAAAAAY too many for one sitting, but this is where JJ’s idea comes into play – pre-package your cookie dough into dozens and freeze!
I measured out balls at about 1 tsp of dough each, rolled them into balls and put them on a cookie sheet to freeze (you’ll want to freeze them spread out first, so they don’t end up in one giant glom).
Put them (by dozens) into freezer bags and tuck away for fresh cookies whenever you want them!
Hubby and I LOVE fresh cookies. Warm, gooey chocolate and soft centres. They just aren’t the same from the store, or even after they’ve been sitting out for awhile. This way you’ve done the legwork in advance and can have hot cookies whenever you want – at a fraction of the price of the Pillsbury rolls at the grocery store!
The girls love cookie dough, so this way they can have a pre-portioned ball of it as a treat.
It’s bad that I made up 10 dozen cookies isn’t it?
It’s worse that these probably won’t last a month.
Have a great one!
