It's WEEK FOUR of National Cookie Month and this week we're sharing recipes for cookies that freeze well. In my opinion, there's no better cookie to freeze than the classic chocolate chip cookie. 




The Four C's. They can't be beat. I've heard that it's the salt that makes or breaks a perfect chocolate chip cookie, but over time I've come to think differently. I think it's the brown sugar. And then the salt. And then the chocolate chips. Whether they be pieces, chunks or chips-- dark, semi-sweet or milk chocolate, it's a personal preference. I like using chips because they're classic, but I really dig a cookie with chunks.

Portion out your cookies using a melon baller or an ice cream scoop and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for 1 hour and then label a resealable plastic bag and place your frozen cookie balls in it. Pull out as many or as few as you need when you need cookies for the bake sale or for a quick treat. Just add 2 minutes to your baking time.


Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 Tbsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually stir in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips . Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets. BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes then remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes 40 cookies
