BETTY'S "RED SPOON" NOTE: To bake fresh cookies on short notice, keep a supply of cookie dough in the freezer, wrapped in foil or plastic wrap and stored in airtight container. Thaw dough just soft enough to spoon onto baking sheet. Both cookie dough and baked cookies can be frozen for 9-12 months.
