Anyway...Tonight I wanted some chocolate chip cookies, but I don't have any chocolate chips (on purpose...for just this reason!) but, after digging around in my "baking box" I came up with an alternate solution.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies.
So I whipped up a batch and as I am mixing it all up and feeling guilty about making cookies I don't need to eat I remembered one of my great ideas of the past!
Freeze the dough.
Here's what I did: I made up the dough.
I dumped the remaining dough onto the parchment paper.
Then, using the parchment paper so I didn't get my hands icky, I made a dough log.
The dough log got cut in half (there was a lot of dough)...
Now my pigging out on cookies is limited to the one cooked batch, but if I want to make a couple of cookies later I can just cut slices off the frozen dough log and bake them. Portion control!
