Freezer Chocolate Chip Cookies

by LeaDawn on August 11, 2011

Last month we spent a week with Daniel’s extended family at a beach house in southern California.  Daniel’s uncle Jerry made these cookies, and I could not stop eating them!  I guess it is a tradition for him to make his chocolate chip cookies.

Uncle Jerry made the cookies before the trip and froze them.  Then we ate them right out of the freezer.  If you are looking for a simple do-ahead treat for a large group gathering, here’s an idea. These could also make a simple after school snack!

Of course, you don’t have to freeze the cookies, that is just how uncle Jerry does it.

Ingredients:

Dry:
5 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
5 cups ground oatmeal (I just ground it in my blender)

Moist:
2 cups of sugar
2 cups brown sugar
2 teasppons vanilla
2 cups butter (softened)
5 eggs beaten

Mix dry ingredients in one bowl.  Cream moist ingredients in another bowl.  Combine dry and moist ingredients.  Add 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips.

For big cookies: Place 9 golf ball size balls on cookie sheet.  Cook at 375 for 10 min.  Makes about 40 cookies.

For smaller cookies (cookie scoop size): fit 12 on sheet.  Bake @ 375 for 6 min.  Makes about 4 1/2 dozen cookies.

Once cool, place in gallon size bags to freeze.  These taste great right out of the freezer.

Note: To freeze, I like to cook them a little less than if I were to eat them right out of the oven.  When you eat them straight from the freezer they are chewy instead of crumbly.

This sounds yummy! One question about the ground oatmeal. Did you measure before or after you ground it? Is is 5 cups ground oatmeal, or 5 cups of oatmeal that you then ground?

thanks!

5 cups of ground oatmeal. So Grind and then Measure. I found that about 1 1/2 cups of oatmeal makes 1 cup of ground oatmeal. Hope you like them!
