Mealplan Monday #51 and freezer cookie dough

Since the holidays, I haven't made up any more cookie dough to freeze - I guess I just forgot about it.  Until last week, when buying cookies for the boys' lunches I wondered why I didn't just make my own.  Homemade cookies take very little time, and if you have a stand mixer, very little work.  They can be store frozen and baked in 10 minutes or so.  Plus, cereal bag liners are *free* storage.  Win, win, win.
Go here for the Toasted Oatmeal cookie recipe I made for my sister.  This go round, I was out of nuts, so I subbed in the last of the coconut in the pantry - about 1/2 a cup, and toasted it along with the oatmeal.  It smelled divine!
It should look like this - a tad browner won't hurt, you just have to be careful not to let it scorch.
Rolled up this way, the dough keeps a few months and is easier to slice and bake.

Mix well with creamed mixture, then toss in 1/2 c. butter brickle bits and stir til combined.
Chill well.  Bake at 375, 10-12 minutes.
