Chocolate Chip Cookies

These chocolate chip cookie recipes make a large amount of dough for freezing.

You will need big container that can be tightly sealed.

The frozen dough is great for making just one or two dozen freshly baked cookies for guests or grandchildren.
To bake the frozen dough, take it out and uncover it when you turn on the oven to 375 degrees to preheat.
Use a teaspoon or small soup spoon and scoop out the frozen dough, forming with the fingers, if necessary.
Immediately return the rest of the dough to the freezer.
For dough that is frozen, bake 1 extra minute, about 12 to 13 minutes total.
