One more really important thing I did not tell you......if you over beat cookie dough it will do that as well.

I never use a mixer for my cookie dough. I only use a spoon to mix all my cookie dough, you're right it bakes differently, but it also tastes differently too. I think it breaks down the butter too much, not sure.

ROFLMBO. It sure feels like it when I'm mixing up all my cookie dough for Christmas; something I'll be doing within a few weeks. I mix up about 20 batches (it's grown through the years from about 3), for friends and family. I mix them up early, put the dough in zip lock bags and stack them in the fridge. It makes baking day much easier and I can get all the baking done in one very long day. But I also think it allows the flavors to blend together better.

I made cookies for my grandbabies today. They had spent the night. I just used the oatmeal recipe on the Quaker oats box. But I added walnuts, mini chocolate chips, peanut butter, and white chips. In part of the dough, I did add some cocoa chile blend from McCormick. I think I needed to add more because there was not much of a taste difference. And I did make them with 1/2 shortening and 1/2 butter. I use parchment paper and did two trays at a time. I use the scoop method. Where all of the cookies are uniform. The dough does comes out very thick. So they did not spread like when it is just the dough and oatmeal itself.

No, I put them in the refrigerator. There is nothing in there that won't hold up in the fridge for several weeks. I've never made my cookie dough far enough in advance to try the freezer, but I would imagine it would work too. I think my mother in law has put my cookie dough in the freezer to keep. I occassionally make her a batch of cookies to share with friends, plus give her some cookie dough so that she can bake up only as much as she needs from time to time.

Let me suggest that if you ever make your dough far enough in advance to freeze (and this is assuming it's for drop cookies like choc chip, oatmeal, snickerdoodles, etc), then I'd suggest to go ahead and scoop them into balls. On baking day, you can just pull the frozen dough balls from teh freezer to oven and you're rockin-n-rollin'!

It's also handy when you get that irritating person who orders a lousy 2 doz and they want 6 of this, 6 of the other, etc. If they are frozen in dough balls in your freezer, you can just pull the 6 of each that you need and in 20 minutes, you're done with the order. No mess, no clean up! thumbs_up.gif

FANTASTIC IDEA. It would never have occurred to me, and that will make baking day sooooooo much easier. As it is I begin when I get up, early, had my coffee and the oven warms up. Then, I keep baking until I drop, then drag myself back up to get all my cookies on their platters and wrapped. This one tip alone will save me tons of time and especially energy. Thank you for such a simple, yet great idea. I bought up lots of butter today on sale in anticipation of beginning my cookie dough making. I'll be getting more during the week.

Also, since I learned to use fondant on cut out cookies, I'm thinking I'll have to try a new kind to add to my selection that I do already.

I'm trying hard to find a good recipe for linzer tarts. I got the cutter for them a few years ago, but have yet to use a recipe that is even passable for them.

I love having pre-formed cookie dough balls in the freezer. I don't even sell them or anything, it's just nice to have them on hand. The other day my kids, husband and I all wanted different kinds -- so I baked four each of sugar, peanut butter, and chocolate chip. I NEVER would have made three different kinds if I had to mix them all up!
