Freezing Cookie Dough

**Originally posted in 2006 on my old cooking blog. I still do this, but usually go ahead and scoop the dough into cookie balls so they're ready to bake!

Here is a great tip I learned from my mom:

When you mix up cookie dough, you can freeze it in ziplock bags to bake later.Be sure to label and date the bags.When you are ready to bake, simply bring the dough to room temperature and bake as usual.

I love doing this because it is so easy to quickly bake some cookies without the mixing mess. This also would make a great gift for a busy mom or anyone who loves fresh baked cookies!
