Homemade Cookies from Your Freezer to Your Oven!
If you have heard of Nieman Marcus cookies this is a Nieman Marcus copy cat cookie recipe that I have had for years. I love to make these cookies. They become an addiction to anyone that makes them. This recipe makes 10 dozen!!! I am never in the mood for cooking 10 dozen cookies all in one afternoon. Plus I like to eat my cookie hot and fresh from the oven. So I always make up 1-2 dozen and freeze the rest of the cookie dough.
I love to bake my cookies on my silpat or my silicone baking mats. (You can get two of these for the price of one silpat.) It helps them bake evenly and turn out extra fab! I always bake 1-2 dozen cookies after making the dough and freeze the rest of the dough for later.
Preparing For the Freezer: Lay your cookie dough out like a tube about 3 inches in diameter across a sheet of aluminum foil. I make these tubes about 12 inches long. I do not want them too long to fit in my freezer.
I usually form about 3 tubes of cookie dough for the freezer if I have cooked a few dozen cookies already.
Prepare after Freezing: Simply slice frozen cookie dough in 1/2 inch slices on place on the cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees.
If you want your cookies to turn out perfectly round you just have to take more care forming your tube into a perfect circle before freezing. My family does not care if the cookies have an occasional flat end.
