Chewy Chocolatey Freezer Cookies

These cookies are soft, chewy, super chocolatey, and yummy.  It was originally a regular cookie recipe, and you can still cook them immediately.  But I like to make a double batch of the dough and freeze it in rolls, as I did during my last bout of freezer cooking.  Then they're there when I need them, and I don't have to make a mess to get fresh-baked cookies!  And they are so much better than frozen or refrigerated dough - it's not made with corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, and other "ingredients" that are horrible for your health.

Chewy Chocolatey Freezer Cookies

2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

In a large mixer bowl, cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla and blend well.  Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in another mixing bowl.  Gradually blend dry ingredients into creamed mixture.

To freeze, divide dough into thirds.  Spoon each third onto a large piece of plastic wrap, then roll the plastic wrap up to make a roll of cookie dough.  Twist the plastic wrap ends closed.  Put rolls on cookie dough into a large plastic bag and place in the freezer to harden.

To bake frozen dough, remove plastic wrap from a roll and cut into 1/2 inch slices while still frozen.  Place slices on a cookie sheet and bake in a 350-degree oven for 9-11 minutes.  Allow cookies to sit on cookie sheet for 1 minute, then remove and place on a wire rack.

These sound really good. I have always loved refrigerator cookies - what a great idea to freeze them. You can have fresh cookies even on a really stressful, busy day!!
