Freezer Cooking: Bucaroons


how to make chocolate chip cookies

Get the munchies at night or crave a snack during the day?  Here’s a recipe that can satisfy your sweet cravings.  It’s a spin on a chocolate chip cookie and I what I like best about this cookies is that they freeze really well.  My mother-in-law (her recipe) actually prefers them frozen and I have to agree!  Now I don’t mind making cookies because I can keep a handful out for dessert that night and then freeze the rest for snacks/dessert other days.  Sometimes I make a double batch so I’ll have a lot of extras on hand in case we need to bring something to a get together.  All I do is take out how many I want the night before so they can unthaw– what a time saver!
