Frozen Cookie Dough

If you make several kinds of cookies during the holidays for a cookie tray at a party or to give as gifts, here’s a tip that is sure to simplify your baking. I spend a couple weekends before the holiday rush (sometimes as early as October) mixing up all the cookie dough. Then I freeze it in large freezer bags. When I’m ready to bake, I just put the dough in the refrigerator the night before to defrost. —Cindi P., Anchorage, Alaska
