29 May 2012
This is a big week in our home. My two oldest kids finish school and all of the festivities, and work, that go into celebrating the end of the school year are in full swing. On top of that, we have some (very welcome) play dates scheduled and some extra unusually scheduled days. Which calls for.... fast kid snacks.
So, on Sunday, I did myself a favor and prepped. As I type, carrot sticks are in the fridge, apples are in the fruit bowl and ready to have their peels removed (since that's the only way my son will eat them these days!) and a batch of frozen cookies is ready for individual baking. Which brings me to the easiest (and best sweet) homemade snack in the world! When the play dates happen, the gardeners arrive, our handyman stops by, a friend stops by to pick up a stack of magazines, spontaneous movie night begins... warm cookies in minutes.
Simply make your favorite cookie dough, roll it into balls, set them on a metal tray/baking sheet, freeze for about 20 minutes, pop them off the tray, place into an airtight container and return to the freezer. When you want a warm cookie, place a frozen cookie ball(s) on a parchment lined cookie tray and bake per usual.
