Lactation cookies

So if one is good for my supply, 25 must be really good right? Just kidding. Kind of. They are tasty. Can you freeze the cookie dough or cookies? I'd love to make a couple batches before I go back to work to have for snacks. I usually cook or bake for consumption rather than extra for freezing, so not sure what works best.

  • Yes you can freeze dough and cookies

  • When I freeze cookies, I make the dough into little balls so when I take it out I can just put it right on the cookie sheets and bake.  I find that already baked cookies can be crumbly after being thawed so I prefer to bake them "fresh" from the frozen dough.

  • I made a huge batch and baked them all on the same day, so I ended up freezing almost all of them. I was skeptical that they would taste okay after being frozen, but they are just as delicious thawed as the day I baked them :)

  • Has anyone tried making a non dairy version? Our pediatrician put me on a non dairy diet because LO was having lactose issues but I would love to make these.
  • I made these too, but I used chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and Heath toffee bits. Yum!

    To PP re lactose, there is no lactose in butter. Lactose is milk sugar, so you can look at the nutritional panel on dairy products; if there's no sugar, there's no lactose. I had to avoid lactose for many years as well. Instead of using chocolate chips, you could use the craisins. Another option might be cacao nibs.
