Can I Freeze This Cookie Dough?

I love having fresh baked cookies whenever the craving hits, but I do not always have time to make a batch of cookies. This is where many people choose to buy the pre-made cookie dough. But you don’t have to. When you are making these cookies, simply, make a double batch and put half of the dough in the freezer. You can freeze as a whole batch or scoop it into balls before freezing.
