I put off following her advice for the longest time because I liked my system of making the whole batch of cookies, putting just a few in my cookie jar and then freezing the rest. When I empty the cookie jar, I put a few more in there. The last few times I have done this, I was unsatisfied with the result. The frozen cookies seemed just a little bit stale, and if I take them directly out of the freezer and heat them up in the microwave, they cook unevenly and sometimes even burn in the middle.
So I'm trying it my mother's way. It works particularly well with Sugar cookies, because they are so versatile. If I want to roll them out and cut them with cookie cutters, I can do that easily with just one batch of cookies. So there you go, mom. As usual, I am doing it your way in the end.
