Cookie dough is a thing of beauty. When it's fresh, it makes delicious and soft cookies, rife with chocolate, raisins, nuts, or anything else that cookie lovers enjoy. If you choose to freeze it, cookie dough makes a long-lasting treat that can withstand the test of time and is only a few short hours away from making delicious cookies in the oven. Getting dough in your kitchen and, eventually, your oven, is a simple task and takes little time to accomplish.
Find a reputable source online to buy cookie dough. Big-name manufacturers, like Otis Spunkmeyer, sell boxed of pre-made chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin and white chocolate macadamia nut dough. Other independent dealers, like David's Cookies and Fatboy's Cookie Dough, have similar options for sale, in a variety of flavours and concoctions.
Decide what amount of dough you want to order, and in what quantity. Some sites, like Otis Spunkmeyer, offer boxes in terms of pounds of cookie dough, while others have poundage options as well as preformed balls of dough in sheets for easy portion control and cooking.
Select the number of tubs, pounds or boxes from the brand you've chosen and, using a credit card, place your secure order online. If you'd rather mail or phone in your order, most websites will allow you to do so by calling a phone number or printing out an order form, filling it out and mailing it in, with either a check or with your credit card information.
When freezing cookie dough for future use, AllRecipes, an online recipe website, recommends leaving packages of dough unopened and storing them for up to 4-6 weeks. If you are left with dough and no container, double-wrap with cling film and store in the freezer. When you're ready to cook the dough, thaw in the refrigerator for several hours until it feels pliable again.
