During the summer, there’s very little baking going on around here. For one thing, it’s too hot to bake and the main reason is that with the longer days and all the outside work, by the time we get in the house in the evenings, we barely have time to shower and get to bed at a decent hour.
But, the days are getting shorter and the temps are getting cooler. Let the baking begin . .
I don’t really like leftover cookies . . fresh out of the oven is about the only way I want them.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll make 8 or 10 different batches of cookie dough and freeze it in on a cookie sheet.
Once the dough is frozen, I’ll vacuum seal it in bags with a dozen or so cookies waiting to be baked in each bag.
The bags of cookie balls/dough go into a bigger zipper bag, with baking instructions and any time we feel the need for cookies, I’ll just take a bag out of the freezer, let it defrost and then bake them.
In addition to the Snickerdoodles, I plan to make the following for the freezer:
- Pecan Sandies
- Chocolate Chip
- Sugar Cookies
- Lemon Cookies
- Ginger Snaps
- Chocolate Krinkles
- Cherry Nut Slice & Bake Cookies
And . . whatever else sounds good when I’m in the cookie baking mood!
