I am one of those people that when I have a dessert craving, it must be satisfied by any and all means necessary. And if that requires running to Baskin Robbins at 9:30 at night for Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream, then that's what happens. We are not people that always keep dessert in the house either. Occasionally we'll have some Skinny Cows around, or leftover pie (in case you hadn't heard, I LOVE PIE), but I rarely buy cookies or sweets to always have around, because that is dangerous and my pants are already getting tight and it's not even fall yet. But I do love me some fresh baked cookies (and i'm not talking about the Pilsbury kind, here), however it's such a production to make fresh baked cookies. Lately though, i've been seeing recipes around for slice and bake cookies, where you can make a roll of cookie dough, freeze it, and cut off a few cookies at a time to bake whenever your'e in the mood. This is so perfect for me, I can't even tell you. I have two rolls of these Oatmeal Crispies in my freezer right now, and plan to make these cookies that Pioneer Woman recently posted about (I love you, Ree).
So go ahead, make a batch of cookie dough and indulge at your own pace (rather than making an entire batch at once and sneaking one out of the tin every time you go in the kitchen, which can easily equal 10 or more cookies a day OMG).
