Yes you can.  Make a roll like you see in the stores, to freeze the dough in that shape rather than lumps.

Thanks. Would I do anything special to defrost it or just leave it out?

Found this online which is different on how i was taught growing up.  Google can be a girls best friend when baking.


How To Freeze Cookie Dough

Print Save Recipe

Ingredients:

Cookie Dough
Cookie Sheet or Baking Tray
Gallon Sized Ziploc bag
Permanent Marker

Directions:

1. Roll the entire batch of cookie dough into balls just like you would if you were baking them.

2. Fill a baking pan or tray (here I've used a 9x13 non-stick baking pan) with all the rolled cookie dough balls, leaving just enough space between the cookie dough balls that they don't get stuck together.

3. Stick the filled pan in the freezer. You don't need to cover it, but make sure to keep it flat so the balls don't move around and get stuck together.

4. Freeze until the cookie dough balls are hard. Meanwhile, take a gallon sized zip top freezer bag and label it with the recipe name, date, cooking temperature and time details.

5. Remove the pan from the freezer. Take all of the cookie dough balls out of the pan and place them in the labeled bag.

6. After filling, lay the bag flat (flat takes up less space). Remove as much air as possible. I like to zip the bag almost all the way and then stick a straw in the bag to suck out the excess air before I finish zipping it.

7. Stash the cookies in the freezer for later!

8. When I go to bake the frozen cookies I usually only thaw the cookies while the oven is preheating. I just let them bake about 2 minutes longer than the original recipe states.
