My family loves cookies but if I bake the entire batch all at once we have a tendency to go through them all in a day or two. To help us control our cookie consumption, I have started making a couple of batches and freezing the dough so that I can bake only what we want to eat at a time. We have enjoyed having a greater variety this way and it saves time. I used mini chocolate chips in this recipe which makes them easier to evenly scoop and you are sure to get chocolate in every bite!
