I love making cookies but I hate having 22 cookies sitting around that I don't ever want to eat. This is the disadvantage of stress baking.

hahaha, I did that with a bunch of citrus peel that I candied and now I don't want. (I still have a bunch of the last batch I made.) I should mail it all to the first couple of ilxors who claim it.

i have roommates for that purpose, abbott! they eat stuff fast! i usually leave the baking to one of them though - he is into weekend pancakes and late night drunk cookie and brownie making, and then i'm the grown up who cooks meals with vegetables and stuff. it's a good division of labor.

a wise laurel once told me to make one sheet of them and freeze the rest of the dough for the next time the craving hits.

i will add to that by saying that if you're making drop cookies, it's a good idea to form them into wee balls before you freeze so that you can take out as many as you want and then toss them in the toaster oven.

i do this with chocolate chip cookies all the time. there are only two people in my apt and we don't want to eat 5 dozen cookies in a few day's time.

wow laurel is seriously wise. i do that with leftover shaped but uncooked DUMPLINGS! (like khinkali and samosas) but have not thought of it for cookie dough. i have, however, made part of the batch and put the rest in the fridge so there were fresh cookies several days in a row.

ahaha DUMPLINGS!

We are baking cowboy cookies right now (oatmeal chocolate chip basically?) and it smells fabulous in here.

Might make some coffee cookies this weekend. Thanks for the tip, I bet they would freeze well.

seven months pass...

Every time I make Snickerdoodles (house favorite cookie), I get to wondering: why do they call for cream of tartar? I don't think I've ever read a snick-dood recipe where it didn't have cream of tartar to make 'em puffy, and I've never seen cream of tartar in a recipe that wasn't for the snix. Anyone know the story behind this?
