Making Cookies to Last the Month


By Nikki Willhite

Planning ahead can make things a lot easier

If your family is like mine...they love their cookies. You can pick up a bag in the store... and it will last about a day, and take up 10% of your Food Budget.

Before I bought my bread machine, I would make my bread in a large, heavy duty, electric mixing machine with a dough hook. Now it has become a cookie mixer.

It is very easy to take your favorite cookie recipe and increase it to make a large, large batch of cookie dough. You don't have to stand over the oven for hours baking the cookies. Simply wrap the dough in saran wrap and then aluminum (or whatever method you use to freeze things) and put it in the freezer. When you want cookies, simply take out the batter, thaw it (room temperatures or in the microwave) and bake your cookies.

The best part- Fresh, hot from the oven cookies when you want them with minimal effort.  (And if you're very clever, you can get your kids to bake them) It's a little work to make the batter- but when you're tired and everyone is hounding you for cookies, you will be glad you made the preparations.
