This is probably a sacrilegious time of year to bake cookies from refrigerated dough, but for those of you who will be too sick of the kitchen to care but are still hankering for homemade chocolate chip cookies, you’ll thank me.
I noticed two new varieties of cookie dough at my grocer’s. I passed them by the first time, but when I saw coupons for both of them in the Sunday paper, I decided there wasn’t much to lose and only a good shortcut to gain.
Let me regress for a moment and say that I discovered this frozen cookie dough a couple of years ago have been in love ever since. But they are hard to find and a little pricey. Plus, I have to wait til my little foodies go to bed to bake them or else they disappear in five minutes. So in order to convince myself that the search and splurge were worth it, I had the Chocolate Chip Cookie Taste Test (every child’s dream job).
