Home baked cookies make the heart smile

What's better than freshly baked homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies? Full of warm gooey chocolate on the inside and a slight crunch on the outside; the smell of buttery dough filling up the house; the way they melt into vanilla ice cream...yum!

Never settle for dozens of stale cookies when they can be baked fresh every time. Simply mix up a batch of dough, roll it into balls, arrange on a baking sheet, and let set in the freezer.

Once frozen, store cookie dough in airtight freezer bags. Label with baking instructions and keep frozen until your next sugar craving.

A great thing about freezing this dough is that it makes the cookies hold their shape as they bake. Don't even bother defrosting them; just pop the frozen dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and into a pre-heated oven. I use the toaster oven for small or individual batches.

For these chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, this is my absolute favourite recipe! Sometimes I add cinnamon and raisins to the mix, and I always make sure to chill the dough before baking it.
