Chef’s Secret: Always be ready to have warm from the oven cookies at a moment’s notice. Use a small scooper to scoop cookie dough on to a large baking sheet, no need to leave much space in between. Freeze for at least an hour. The frozen scoops will stay for a month in a labeled, with cooking instructions, Ziploc bag for you to use whenever the need arises
