Freshly baked cookies are an ideal gift. Make a batches of dough in advance, freeze and cook from frozen when required
Most of my friends are disappointed if I don’t give them something edible at Christmas. The good thing about cookies is that you can keep balls of dough in the freezer, ready to be baked as if from fresh whenever you need them – and they aren’t limited to a specific occasion, either. No excuse is needed for a cookie – a fact often reinforced by my friends – so I should always have some in my bag at the ready to give away.
