4 Weeks to Fill Your Freezer, Day 16

Oh. my. goodness.  The cookies that we made today in the 4 Weeks to Fill Your Freezer at Money Saving Mom are sooooo good!  They are going to start calling my name from the freezer, and I’m going to have a heck of a time resisting them….


I started the cookie dough early in the evening, right before dinnertime.  I figured I could get a batch in the oven while dinner was cooking.  After all, I couldn’t make cookie dough and not bake a few cookies…my family would never forgive me 🙂

My hubby decided that he would help me by measuring out the ingredients as I went along.  After I got the butter and sugars creamed, he tried to measure out the vanilla and promptly spilled it all over the counter.

A complete novice in the kitchen, he thought that vanilla extract had the consistency of barbecue sauce and so he expected it to come out of the bottle slowly. He wasn’t ready for the splash of liquid that came running out.  Ah well….he had good intentions, the lovable sweetheart that he is 🙂  Besides, the kitchen now smells all vanilla-y.


After I got the dough all mixed up, I baked a tray of cookies and rolled the rest of the dough to put in the freezer for another day.

blankI used up my last freezer bag this afternoon portioning out chicken for the freezer from my Aldi shopping trip, so I had to put the dough balls in a plastic container.  I don’t expect that they will be in there long however…they are so delicious!


My taste tester agrees!

    Erin, we had to bake some up ourselves. They are really good. I know that they will not last too long in our freezer either. Your little guy looks like he really enjoyed the cookies.

    See the pictures of everyone’s peanut butter chocolate chip cookies is creating a craving! I just might have to give into it and make up a big batch of them today. Problem is only 2 of the 5 people in our household like them, and one of them is me and i like them a bit too much! LOL

    The cookies look delicious, and your taste tester is a cutie! By the way, thanks for asking about a tutorial on graphics. I’m going to look into some ways to create good looking graphics for your blog with tools we can find online – not having to use Photoshop. 🙂 As soon as I get done with a website project that is taking me a realllllly loooong time to finish up, I’m going to work on this! 🙂
