The teens are off today for their World View class and needed a treat to bring. I came across the BEST oatmeal raisin cookie recipe! They are chewy and buttery and I just happened to have a giant supply of free raisins from a few months back that I needed to use up.
I made a double batch and just cooked up a few dozen to take. But I had so much leftover that I decided to freeze the dough. I formed them into balls, froze them on a cookie sheet and when they were hardened, transferred them to a freezer bag.
Next time when the kids are wanting a snack all I have to do is pull them out of the freezer, put them on a cookie sheet and cook them for a few extra minutes to thaw and then finish baking. That will save me so much time when we have our next cookie craving.
Here's the recipe if you're interested:
