Cookies: You Don'T Have To Make The Whole Batch!

This Sparked Me!

If you are craving cookies but don't want to eat the whole batch, this secret is for you! Next time you make a batch of cookies, bake only 1 or 2 for each person in your household. Use a melon baller to scoop the rest of the dough onto a cookie sheet and then freeze it on the sheet. When frozen, store in a freezer bag (separate w/ wax paper) & write the time to bake and oven temp on the front. You can bake 1 or 2 at a time by adding 2 minutes to the total baking time!

I love this secret because every once in a while I must have a cookie, but I don't want the whole batch hanging around my house. Also, if I have to think about baking the cookie before eating it, it makes me question whether or not I really have room for it in my calorie intake.

    Thank you. My kids love cookies. And by baking a small amount and freeze the rest in separated balls, I will not eat left over cookies from my kids:)
