yesterday's oven-dried apples went into a fresh batch of cookies today. Also along for the ride were some dried cranberries. They all came together to make Oatmeal Cran-Apple Cookies.
The recipe I used, which I adapted from How to Cook Everything Vegetarian, made plenty of cookie dough. I baked the first dozen, and froze the rest of the dough.
Just about any cookie dough can be frozen for later use. Most people roll their dough into a tube shape, wrap it in wax paper, and freeze it that way. This time, I thought I'd try something different. My idea was the maximize my time today in order to save time later. So, I spooned the dough onto a half-sheet lined with wax paper, and froze what basically amounted to two dozen cookie-sized, bake-ready, balls of dough.
Tomorrow morning, I plan to gather my little frozen balls of cookie dough up and store them together in a freezer bag. I've never tried to freeze cookie dough this way, but theoretically, it should work. Either way, I'll post my results when I find out.
Speaking of freezers, The Vegan Foodie has tagged me to show the contents of my freezer. Eek! Hopefully, I'll get to that tomorrow.
