I have to ask you, Bunnywoman, how big do you make your cookies? From the recipe, I made 8 and a 1/2 dozens! I made them a little more than 1 tbsp of the dough and they came out pretty good sizes. Good thing I'm going to visit my mom tomorrow and my husband has a board meeting at school as well tomorrow that I'll get rid of some. I could probably try to freeze some but I know my husband will not let me. Chocolate chip cookies are his best and seriously these are the best we've ever tasted! Oh, I also added cocktail peanuts(crushed them a bit) and they were great.
Bunnywoman, again, THANKYOU, for all the wonderful recipes you've shared with us!
If I keep it strictly at that medium scoop mark then I get about 8 dozen. My Mom wants me to make the small scoop once with my recipe to see how many I get. I haven't done that yet. I would think I could get about 11-12 dozen then (at a guess). I never use the large cookie scoop for these. I tried it once on the last little bit of cookie dough I had in the bowl and got really BIG cookies.
I dump in half of the bag and stir with a wooden spoon. I scoop out about the top 1/3 of the bowl because that is where all of the chips are. Then I add in the last half of the bag and stir again. I go down about half of what it left for batter in the bowl. I then open up another bag of chips and dump some more in to finish up the remaining batter left.
If you use a small scoop you will get ALLOT, and I mean ALLOT, of cookies!
I freeze these all of the time!!!!!! Never a problem at all freezing them.
Here is what I do........ok I spoil my hubby and Dad.........I put 5 cookies inside of a Ziploc sandwich bag. I use a Ziploc FREEZER bag and put 5 sandwich bags inside of the freezer bag. This will last them 1 full week at work. I pop it into the freezer. When they need a bag for their lunches they open the Ziploc freezer bag and grab a sandwich bag and pop it in their lunch bag and off they go! Re-seal the freezer bag for tomorrow's lunch. Works like a charm and a real time saver too. My Mom loves it when I have them all bagged up for my Dad and ready to go too.
Hope that helps,
