Cookie Dough Pots For Christmas

Asked by Carole the cook. Answered on 8th December 2017

Full question

I'd like to make Nigella's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pots as an alternative Christmas dessert. Can they be frozen raw and cooked from frozen or defrosted overnight in the fridge and cooked as in the recipe?

Our answer

Nigella's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pots (from SIMPLY NIGELLA) are individual gooey desserts that are popular with children and adults alike. It is possible to make the pots ahead. They can be made up to 6 hours ahead and stored, covered, in the fridge. Take the pots out of the fridge while the oven heats up so that they lose some of their fridge chill and then bake following the recipe instructions.

The pots can also be frozen for up to 3 months. Wrap each pot tightly in clingfilm and put in resealable palstic bags before freezing. Thaw the pots overnight in the fridge and bake as above. Alternatively they can be baked direct from frozen. Unwrap the pots and bake following the recipe instructions but adding 2 minutes to the cooking time.
