Also, most cookie doughs actually do better if refrigerated overnight. And unbaked balls of batter do well frozen (and I hate freezing anything). But the cookie dough develops more completely with refrigerating and freezing (few hours to a day).
Oddly enough, I find if I store it in an airtight container, they go soft quickly, but if I store it in individual bags (like the ones in my album
) they stay fresh longer?
