Grandma Dot’s Oatmeal Freezer Cookies are sure to go down a treat. Try freezing this dough in smallish logs, just enough to make about 8 cookies.

By freezing smaller portions, the dough thaws more quickly. And because you only bake a few cookies at a time, they are always fresh.

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars together in a bowl. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, salt, baking soda, oats and nuts. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture until just blended.
  3. Shape the dough into 2-inch rolls on greaseproof paper. Roll up and twist the ends together.
  4. Chill until firm (at least 2 hours) or freeze for later use (place the logs in a plastic bag before freezing).
  5. When ready to bake the cookies, thaw the dough (only if frozen), then cut into 3/4-inch slices.
  6. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet with at least 1 inch separating the cookies.
  7. Bake at 180°C / 350°F for approximately 10 minutes.
  8. Immediately remove the cookies from the cookie sheet and cool on a wire rack.
