I got a wild hair the other day and decided to try my hand at homemade slice & bake cookies. Brilliant, right? Totally – and a HUGE mom win. Not to mention this is EASY!
So, to do this, I took the basic Toll House Cookie recipe (on the back of the chip package) and mixed it up. I divided the dough in half, and placed one half on a good size sheet of wax paper. I then rolled it into a tube and twisted the ends shut – easy right? RIGHT!
I then wrapped the roll in cling wrap and placed on the all important blue tape label. Repeat this with the other half of the dough. This made two logs of cookie dough.
Place in freezer until you are ready to bake. Voila! Homemade slice & bake cookies. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before. Not only was this brilliant, but having this in the freezer actually helped pick me up when I was having a black cloud day. Just slice and bake and you’re off to go.
