Personal Notes:
My friend Laurie graciously shared this recipe, and it has become my go to for bake sales or just to have on hand in the freezer to have fresh baked cookies in a jiffy.

To freeze, prepare the dough all the way to rolling in sugar and flattening with a fork. Once prepared, place unbaked cookies close together on a baking sheet and place the sheet uncovered in the freezer. Once frozen, cookies should be put in a zip lock freezer bag until needed. No need to thaw before baking, just add a minute or two to the cook time.
