Putting it together is easy and it helps you too because you can make it ahead and put it in your freezer until you are ready to give. You probably already have your favorite recipe but if you don’t, this is my family’s favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.
When gifting cookie dough you want to package it so it can be stored without concerns of freezer burn. Also, remember to share instructions on storage and baking. You can share this information very simply by using this adorable printable label.
