I know this was from forever ago. I did a search for chocolate chip cookies to save a duplicate post, and I'm really glad I found this! Lately I've been extremely disappointed with cookie recipes, but this makes up for all the bad batches I've made. I tried the chocolate chip batch, it was wonderful. My husband and I couldn't stop eating them. We practically got belly aches before we noticed we'd had one too many!

The only thing I did different was downsize the basic cookie mix to make it fit for one occasion, and substitute shortening with butter (we didn't have any shortening). I'm terrible at storing things, almost anything I try to keep longer than a day finds it's way to spoiling quick. Plus we don't make cookies too often. Thank you for sharing. I'll definitely be using this in the future.

I had to re print this out.. couldn't find my copy. I will save it to a folder in my email this time so I'll be sure to find it again.

Keep the mix in the freezer until you need it, that's what I do with the bisquick mix I make up from here.

I usually end up freezing things and forgetting about them for weeks or months at a time, but having cookie mix frozen and ready to go for the next time we want them is a great idea! I'll have to do that once I make these again.

I either freeze the made up dough in a flat pat, I'll either defrost and add more stuff to the mix OR when still 2/3 frozen I cut into squares/cubes and cook like that it's then like the store bought dough.

OR I make up half the mix, make the cookies and freeze, they defrost in 5 mins at most and put the other half of the dough in the freezer.

I have a LABELLED basket put aside in the freezer specifically for my biscuit/cookie/pastry/bisquick mixes and that way I don't forget I also date stuff and refuse to make up new mixes until the old one is finished.

Minny I go through a fair bit of flour and as my freezer is filled with mixes, meats and bread etc I tend not to store flour there but my mil does, she uses it slowly so it suits her.

When the kids were all home I used more flour in baking but I don't do alot of baking now, so I don't use it up as fast. I've made up the cookies & either cut them out with cutters or just made drop cookies & froze them.. then when I want some, I just take them out & bake. Saves a little time that way.
