Place 24 cookies in a tupperware container. Cover and hide so you will have some later that week. I always make a double batch and vary the condiments to taste. Watch out for cookie monsters. They come in all sizes and ages!!!
Some recipes call for raisins, but they are never even optional in my recipes. Sorry if you like raisins.
