Cookie Dough in Advance

Asked by Thobbs. Answered on 7th May 2012

Full question

Hi there! Can you please let me know if the Cookie Dough in Nigella Kitchen can be made a day in advance and stored in the fridge overnight before baking. Thanks.

Our answer

We believe that you are referring to the Chocolate Chip Cookies from Kitchen (p257). It is possible to make the dough the day before. We suggest that you shape the cookies and put them onto parchment lined baking sheets then loosely cover with clingfilm and refrigerate until needed. If you just make the dough and refrigerate it overnight without forming the cookies then you will need to take it out of the fridge and let it stand at room temperature until it is soft enough to scoop. As the cookies are only chilled the cooking time will be the same as the time stated in the recipe.

You can also freeze the formed but unbaked cookies oon parchment lined baking sheets then transfer the cookies to a bag ince they are solid and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months.Bake direct from frozen, following the instructions in the recipe and adding 2 to 3 extra minutes to the baking time.
