Notes

To Freeze Cookie Dough 
This cookie dough can be frozen for up to one month. To freeze, form balls into 18 double tablespoons. Place them single layers on a baking sheet. Freeze for 2 hours until firm. Add balls to a zippered freezer bag, label and date them with recipe cook time. 
To bake add them from frozen and give them 1-2 minutes extra bake time- so, 11-13 minutes. 
Fresh Factor
Cookies stay fresh for up to 5 days in an airtight container for best taste. 
How to Make 36 Cookies 
You can make 36 cookies if you make these in smaller, tablespoon-sized balls. 
Add-ins
If you want to use just chocolate chips or M&Ms, double the amount called for.
