Everyone needs a classic and easy chocolate chip cookie recipe up their sleeve, and this no-fuss version is as simple as the recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag. Keep some of the unbaked cookie dough in the freezer to bake off whenever the mood strikes.
Game plan: The dough freezes well—just scoop rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet, dip your finger in water, and gently press the dough into 1/2-inch-thick disks. Freeze until firm and transfer to a resealable plastic freezer bag for up to 1 month. Bake straight from the freezer without thawing.
