    Default Frozen Cookie Dough Ideas


    Hi KANDY

    I know from living and eating my last batch of ginger snacks that the dough stayed frozen and good since last October 2001. They were delicious and it made alot. I always make cookies ahead and freeze but forgot this batch. My mom got a couple of these rolls of frozen dough and was so thankful. She is on oxygen 24/7 and cannot do alot. But she can start the stove, slice the roll of dough to the amount she wants and cook them.
    Hope this helps you see cookie can can stay frozen as long as well wrapped. I double wrap all my rolls.

    I"m guessin you thaw then slice right? I'm just trying to plan this out here cause I wanna have stuff to do while I'm trying to stay outta the stores. I was doing pretty well but then got totally frustrated w/the top drawer of my scrapbooking stuff trying to find which pair of scissors I wanted to use. Know what I did? I ran to Home Depot and bought some peg board ($2.25), hooks (8 for $1.59 x 2) and then the spacers so DH can hang it on the wall ($1.59)! So for less than $8 I have sooooo much more storage space for my craft stuff! YIPPIE!!!

    Cookie dough will not freeze like a rock. I always used to cut it
    frozen. Although this was in a refrigerator top freezer, not a deep
    freeze. Pam

    I always freeze the cookie dough on a sheet in lumps (drop cookie style) and then bag. I don't think they have ever stayed in longer than two months, but they always tasted great. I have also been known to nibble on them raw (I am addicted to raw cookie dough) and they tasted fine as well.

    We bought a package of the Nestle ones and froze it for about 5
    months.

    Pulled it out this past weekend and they were WONDERFUL!!!!

    Now with all this discussion of doing it ourselves, does anyone have
    a recipe (or an idea about how to actually do it) that includes the
    carmel centers in the cookies?

    These are the cookies in the cold case that are in small sheets of 12
    per package. The log concept won't work with these.

    Thanks guys!

    Just wondering why you couldn't put the caramel in the center before making the log and then freeze? I would probably try something like that. Just my opinion though.

    Taking that idea one step further......if you want to have it only in the center so the caramel doesn't melt all over the pan why not make two logs. One with caramel and one without. Cut them up and then put a w/o slice on top of and under the with caramel slice. Sounds complicated, but I'll bet it would go real quickly.
    Just a thought.

    Hi Faye,

    The cookie is actually a chocolate chip cookie with a carmel center
    when eaten. You can't see the carmel at all, only when you bite into
    the center of the cookie. If you cut the cookies from logs, you'd
    have a cookie that you could see the carmel in and I believe without
    the cookie base on the cookie pan, you'd probably have a mess as
    well, when you tried to remove them from the pan.

    Thanks for trying,

    why not take a spoonful of cookie dough and mold around carmel ---make
    separate ones and freese that way---have seen this done with choc kisses
    and nuts etc---

    Okay guys, between the last two responses (use of two logs and this
    one). I think you've found it!

    When you actually look at the cookies, I'll bet what they've done is
    take half a carmel (the square guys, the retangles would be too bit)
    and stuffed it in the dough. Seeing that you can freeze individual
    raw cookies as well as the logs, I don't see why it wouldn't work!
    Guess I'll have to get out my baking hat next week and see what I can
    come up with!

    Thanks for the ideas,

    How about rolling a thin layer of cookie dough out. placing your carmel pieces in rows on the rolled out dough. rolling out another thin layer of cookie dough and laying it on top of the carmels. cut apart the pieces and slightly press on the edges to make a seal all around the cookie "sandwiches". flash freeze then bag.

    I was just wondering if you let the dough thaw before you bake them or do
    you just pop them in frozen and bake them up that way???? I have never
    tried to freeze any dough for cookies. I tried dinner rolls one time and
    the first few did really good, but when I got down to the last ones they did
    not rise like they should have. They tasted okay just did not puff. I
    would really like to make some and have them rise like they are supposed
    too. I also would like to be able to make bread dough and cinnamon rolls to
    freeze and cook later, but don't know how. Oh well.
    Take Care and God Bless!!!!

    My dough always froze well but it is in a deep chest freezer so maybe that's the difference. I do thaw some doughs but not the ginger ones.I keep them and cut with a super sharp knife and cook just what I want. I also bake other cookies and freeze them down in my freezer for months ahead.I freeze my sweet breads for up to a year. I double wrap and make sure they are deep in side the freezer, not near the top.

    How about taking a log, cut it in half, take a little of it out down the center of each half (have to satisfy that raw cookie dough craving) insert caramels ( i agree that you need to cut them in half first) in the center and put the log together again...freeze like that or slice right away.
    Sounds good in theory at least to me
