9) Store Cookie Dough
Though it is more time consuming to make cookies from scratch, the result is inherently more rewarding. Make use of the extra effort by doubling the recipe. This is a particularly great hack during the holidays when people are spending more time baking for festivities and visiting relatives. Cook the amount you want then roll the rest of the dough into individual balls. Place them on a plate with baking parchment paper and freeze. To save space, once they are frozen, you can put the dough balls into a Ziploc bag. The next time you have a hankering for homemade cookies, the hard part is done. All that’s left is to place them on a cooking sheet and pop them in the oven. Due to being frozen, they will likely require a couple extra minutes of cooking time.
