Tips for Freezing Cookies

There are 3 ways to freeze cookies. You can freeze the cookies as a bowl of cookie dough batter, freeze cookie balls or freeze the baked cookies.
In order to freeze the cookie dough as a whole, move the dough to an airtight container or wrap in plastic wrap. Then wrap the dough in foil and again in plastic. This will prevent freezer burn.
In order to freeze the cookie dough balls, you will scoop the cookies are normal. Freeze the cookies on a cookie sheet or plate. Once the cookies dough balls are frozen, you can move the balls to a freezer bag or to an airtight container.
In order to freeze already baked cookies, freeze them in a single layer first. Once frozen, the cookies can be stacked or put into a freezer bag. This will prevent the cookies from freezing together. You can remove the cookies as needed instead of the entire batch.

Frozen cookie dough will last in the freezer for up to 3 months. Frozen cookies will last for about 6 months. When you are ready to thaw the cookie dough to use, place it in the refrigerator. Scoop dough as normal and bake, or wait for the dough balls to thaw and bake as normal. If baking frozen cookie dough balls, add an extra minute or two to the bake time. Careful to not overbake cookies.
