How to freeze cookie dough … kitchen helper
Making your own biscuits or cookies is a great idea because homemade always tastes best and it will save you money. And if you’ve got school-aged children you can create tasty lunch-box treats and know exactly what ingredients are going into them. Because most of us are time-poor it makes sense to make a big batch of cookies so that you’ve got a supply on hand whenever you need them or whenever the craving for fresh cookies hits. You can freeze cookie dough but there are a few tips to ensure you get the best results. Read on to discover them.
1. Chill your cookie dough in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, then roll the dough into balls and place them on a baking tray.
2. Pop the baking tray with the balls in the fridge for an hour; this will help the dough hold its shape.
3. Transfer the balls to an airtight container and label it with the date. You should use cookie dough within 6 weeks of making it.
4. Place the container in the freezer until you are ready to use the dough.
5. When it comes time to bake the cookies you can either bake from frozen, just add an extra couple of minutes to the cooking time, or you can thaw the dough at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking.
