To freeze the cookie dough, make the dough and then roll the dough into individual cookie dough balls. Place the dough balls on a baking sheet and place the baking sheet into the freezer. Once the dough balls are frozen, remove them from the baking sheet and store in a gallon sized ziploc bag until you plan on baking the cookies.
