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



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.
