Can Cookie Dough Be Frozen?

Cookie dough can be frozen for up to 3 months.

You can form dough into a ball and freeze the whole batch in a freezer container.

Or, you can form individual cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet and freeze for  hours.

When frozen, transfer the cookies to a heavy duty freezer bag.


How Long Will Cookies Keep In the Freezer?

Cool cookies completely and freeze on a cookie sheet.

When frozen, transfer cookies to a heavy duty freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.


What Can You Substitute For Brown Sugar?

You can use white sugar in equal amounts, but your cookies will be a little crisper.

Or, you can add 2 tablespoons molasses to every cup of substituted white sugar and you will not be able to tell the difference.
