This might just be the ultimate chocolate chip cookie recipe (besides our refrigerated dough, of course). We’re talking soft, chewy cookies studded with melty chocolate chips and baked to golden-brown perfection. With a yield of 72 cookies, this is the very definition of a “big batch” recipe, so feel free to save some of this freezer-friendly dough for later. Just freeze individual scoops, and your cookies can go straight from freezer to oven. Just add about five minutes to bake time for frozen dough.
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.
Tip: 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.
