I generally keep the stock of cookie’s dough in my freezer to treat my guests with baked cranberry pistachio cookies. This idea helps a lot in case of some unexpected guests. No matter whatever the reason is but having cookies dough ready in your freezer is always a good idea.

    How to freeze cookies dough

    Most of the butter base cookie dough can be frozen for future use. The steps to freezing are simple:

    1. Make the dough with same measurements as suggested in the recipe.
    2. Divide the dough into lemon size balls.
    3. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and place all these dough balls in the baking tray. Remember to leave some space between each dough ball.
    4. Cover these dough balls with a cling wrap and place this tray into freezer.
    5. Keep the dough balls in freezer for about 5-6 hours. The dough balls will freeze by this time.
    6. Transfer these dough balls into a zip lock bag and store these into freezer again. Do not forget to put a label with name of dough and date.
    7. Whenever you want to bake, take these dough balls out. No need to thaw the dough. You can bake these cookies directly by adding 3-4 minutes extra to the suggested baking time.

    This easy hack of freezing cookies dough is helpful and makes cookies easy to make at a time of your choice.

      • Hello Rekha,
        – For cookies, use the middle rack while baking.
        – If you have a small oven, reduce the temperature a little.
        – Use only bottom rods for baking cookies.

      • Hello Rekha,

        These are dried cranberries. If you feel that the butter has melted in the dough and the dough has become, you may refrigerate the dough for sometime. Also, if you put the dough in refrigerator for sometime, it is only going to make it easier for you to shape it.
