Cookies are my favorite things to bake. I like to make triple and double recipes and bake one or two pans of 16 cookies and store the rest of the dough tightly covered in the fridge and make some more the next day and the next and the next….. It is so handy having the dough in the fridge – you can make a fresh batch of cookies to bring to someone in just a few minutes.
My grandkids love to “bake cookies” – they like the kind of dough you roll in balls and then roll around in sugar before putting them on the pan. They can put the pans of cookies in the oven and help take them out and use a spatula to take them off the pan – it makes us happy to make cookies together.
Tonight, I baked up the last of the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie dough in the fridge and mixed up a big batch of Ginger Cookies and baked one pan of them and put the rest of the dough in the fridge.
