If your home is for sale, the route to finding a buyer means making someone else feel like home. Many agents suggest baking cookies prior to an open house, not always an easy order on tight timetables. It's also not impossible. You can always buy the pre-made cookies available in from the refrigerated section in the grocery store. Throw the cookies on the pan, and bake. However, store-bought, refrigerated cookies can be expensive and may expire before you need them.
Another option is to make a big batch of your family's favorite drop cookies and freeze the batter in cookie-sized pieces. The dough will keep in freezer-safe containers for 4-6 weeks. Simply make your favorite dough, drop it onto cookie sheets that will fit in your freezer and freeze solid. Once the dough is frozen, transfer the cookie dough to freezer safe containers and put it back in the freezer. When the time for the next open house approaches, simply pull out what you need, place cookies on a parchment-lined baking sheet, thaw for 25-35 minutes and bake according to the recipe instructions. By lining the baking sheet with parchment, you guarantee easy cleanup. Throw away the parchment and return the baking sheet to its place in the cupboard. It's an easy way to make a great impression.
