Homemade Break ‘n Bake Cookies

Two cookie dough posts in one week. You’d think I was pregnant and craving cookies or something. (Oh wait.)

Actually, I really should have included this in Monday’s How to Freeze Cookie Dough article, but we’ll let this one stand on its own.

I love gifting people with homemade cookie dough. And this is a simple and easy way to do it!

  • Scoop into groups of twelve.
  • Wrap up and freeze. (I wrap in plastic wrap, with foil around that.)
  • Label cooking directions on a quart size freezer baggie.
  • Tuck the package of frozen dough into the baggie. (Can be done before or after freezing.)
  • Deliver to someone in need of some delicious home-baked cookies!

And with the busy holiday season coming up…it’s not only the gift of cookies that you’re giving…but also the gift of time.

A very precious commodity in the coming months!

I love Pillsbury break and bake cookies. Right now there is a sale at Kroger – buy 5, get $5 in catalinas. There is also a coupon out for these cookies – $1/2. In the end, it turns out there are only $1 per pack. I grabbed some for a bake sale we did and it made 48 cookies in 2 packages. It worked out great!!

Wow. I am always baking and freezing dough…NEVER have I thought to do this! Awesome, thanks for the great idea! (Last year I did give away hot chocolate balls with homemade marshmallows…so should have thought of cookies!)

This is an awesome idea for frozen cookie dough. I have started freezing homemade cookie dough this school year. I divide the dough in thirds and freeze it. On Friday’s I’ll pull out my cookie dough and bake in time for my grandson to arrive home from school.
