Summer means the kids are going to be home a lot more; for me, this also simply means that they are going to be asking for food a lot more.  Summertime in my house is about ALL things indulgent!  Most especially when it comes to sweet treats!  This is because for the rest of the year my kids' intake of sweets and cold treats are limited due to the threat of a sore throat.  Like me, they easily suffer from a sore throat after an indulgent snacking gone overboard.  

Like I said, it being summer, I have stocked my pantry full, my fruit basket is filled to overflowing, my freezer is also full of icy treats. We have a baking day every Saturday, and they get to choose what sweet treats they would like to make.

One of their favorite things to munch on is choco chip cookies.  And so I figured I could save myself some time by making this one VERY HUGE batch to last them the entire summer!  Yes!

And so we dumped in roasted almond, pistachios, dark choco chips, bittersweet choco chips, milk choco chips, white choco chips, sprinkles.... anything that is a delight to our hearts!
I simply just scooped the cookie dough onto a tray.
 And stored batches of them in several plastic containers. 
 Ready to be popped into the oven anytime the craving starts.

For a complete step-by-step on how to freeze cookie dough for future use, read this earlier post.
