Since this is a big-batch recipe, freeze half of the dough. Drop the dough by spoonfulls on a cookie sheet and freeze. Once the mounds of dough are frozen, place them in an airtight container and freeze. When it's time to bake the cookies, add about 5 minutes to compensate for the frozen dough.
Package 1 or 2 cookies in small snack bags to tuck into school lunch bags.
Portion dough with a melon baller or large measuring spoon. Hands stay clean, and cookies will all be the same size. Coat it with cooking spray first for a stick-free scoop. More smart kitchen tips.
