Many of our guests request “lunch to go” for their trip after staying at the Inn. We always include some fresh baked cookies and this month’s recipe is for one of the several varieties we make. These are made in advance in a roll then sliced into cookies and kept in a plastic bag in the freezer. When we need cookies, we just take however many cookies you want out of the freezer and pop them in the oven.
You can make a batch to have when the grand kids come over or for an afternoon snack for the kids.
