I made a double batch of chocolate chip cookies this afternoon but didn't want to bake up the whole bowlful so I decided to make some of the dough into cookie balls. It's a nice way to bake in small batches yet use your recipes and time economically. Make up your dough and bake all that you want for the time being. Then roll dough into balls, set on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and quick-freeze the balls by setting them in a freezer for about 30 minutes so they set up fairly hard. After that, dump them into a freezer bag and store in the freezer until you want to make some up fresh. There's nothing like a fresh-baked cookie in comparison to a frozen, thawed cookie (although I like them any way, shape, or form). If you're a cookie dough eater, this is a very handy method. Just go to the freezer and grab a few balls and pop in your mouth. You really don't have to thaw the balls before baking. Just set them on your sheet and pop them into a pre-heated oven according to your directions.
