Time for cookies

The reference to cookie dough yesterday reminded me of one of my favorite survival tips.  I learned to do this one after being the beneficiary of it from my friend Hisayo, many years ago.

When making cookies, bake half and freeze the rest of the dough for later.  Shape it into a log, just like Pilsbury does, and wrap it in wax paper (or plastic wrap).  Then encase it in a Ziploc bag and stash it in the freezer.  We can get by with only half the recipe at a time - at least our waistlines can - and how fun it is to be able to make cookies at a moment's notice later!

Those are the times Proverbs mentioned, when your children "rise up and call you blessed".  Amen.
