Quick, Easy, Thoughtful, and Homemade Gift Idea

Standard

I saw this pin a while back and have not forgotten it- it is such a great idea! Basically, you freeze cookie dough either for you to use later, or to give as a gift.

I like to use the classic recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag (or it can be found on Nestle’s site). You could also use another recipe, like my Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cranberry Walnut Cookie recipe.

Scoop the cookie dough on a cookie sheet. I like to put the dough on parchment paper for easy removal and clean-up.

Label a freezer bag with the contents, date, and baking instructions. If you have a small family, this is a great way to avoid the temptation to eat a whole batch of cookies in two days. I like being able to have fresh cookies at a moment’s notice.

Homemade cookie dough would also make a nice housewarming gift. This would also be a thoughtful gift for a new mom; with this gift they can have fresh-baked cookies without the hassle of mixing and clean-up.

If you are one of those super-crafty people, you could put them in creative packaging as seen here and here and here. Don’t you just love Pinterest?

Now if I can only keep myself from eating all the frozen cookie dough in my freezer!

Would you like to receive a gift like this?

Another yummy gift to give is homemade jam. I plan to get some fresh local strawberries soon and to can some strawberry jam or strawberry-lemon marmalade. When I do, I’ll be sure to post pictures!
