The Old Standby---Peanut Butter Cookies!
Well, I had a hankering for peanut butter cookies today. Carter and I decided to make some while the other 2 kids were sleeping. I decided to make a double batch, because honestly, it is rare that I'm in the mood to bake cookies. Maybe I'm too lazy but I feel like they're too much work. I'd rather just mix the dessert all together and stick it in a pan instead of doling out each individual cookie. However, I do love the Pampered Chef tool that lets you measure them all out the same and really does make the process much easier! Anyways, since I decided to do a double batch I wanted to freeze the dough, but wasn't sure about logistics. I read on-line an idea that said to freeze them already measured out. Just drop the dough balls onto a cookie sheet and place in the freezer. I stuck them in for an hour and that seemed to be just right. Afterwards I transferred the cookie balls to a freezer bag labeled with what they are and when they need to be used by. According to www.Organized-Mom.com cookie dough will freeze well for 4-6 weeks. When I'm ready to bake another batch I'll simply let them stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes before baking.
