- Divide the dough into lemon size balls.
- 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.
- Cover these dough balls with a cling wrap and place this tray into freezer.
- Keep the dough balls in freezer for about 5-6 hours. The dough balls will freeze by this time.
- 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.
- 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.
