From scratch cookies are a treat bakers of all skill levels can master. As with any baking project, it takes practice and even sometimes failure to figure things out and get really good at it. There are slight variables with ingredient quality and ovens but, I assure you it can be done. Furthermore, why wouldn’t you want to? Baking from scratch be it fresh cookies, layer cakes, pies or cobblers really show the love in the small amount of effort that it takes to make them.
Freshly made cookie dough is incredibly forgiving and can be stored in the fridge or even frozen, if you like. When there’s cookie dough chillin’ in the fridge that means you can enjoy the luxury of freshly baked cookies any time. Fill your cookie jar with these cookies or you may consider keeping them all to yourself. It’s completely up to you.
