Every once in a while I do myself a favor. And when I do these little acts of kindness for myself, the payoff is magnanimous. They are so beneficial, one would think that I would be encouraged to continue to do more little niceties for myself. But today the favor paid off perfectly. A few weeks ago I had made up a batch of Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, scooped and shaped them, placed them on a tray, froze solid, then placed the raw dough balls in a large zip top bag to be placed in the freezer for future need. Today the need arose. I pulled out the amount I needed, baked them up, and passed the little beauties off as freshly baked, um… they were, weren’t they?
I occasionally mix up multiple batches of a mixed variety of cookies and freeze them in the manner described above. Then when required a variety can be baked up “fresh”. I enjoy the cookie recipes from the Toll House web site.
