About this recipe: Truth is, you can freeze almost any biscuit or cookie dough, but here's a recipe with specific instructions for freezing the cookies before baking. You can freeze them all and bake of either the whole batch or only a few at a time as and when you want them. It is great to have these to hand for unexpected guests, or late night cravings!
