The Make-Way-Ahead Chocolate Chip Cookies
You can make the dough for these ultrasoft-and-chewy cookies in advance, and then bake them the day of your event. Portion spoonfuls onto trays, freeze, and then move each frozen ball into an airtight container. Frozen cookies can go straight into the oven; they'll just need a few extra minutes to bake.
