I often bake up to 100 dozen cookies around the holidays to give as gifts (Okay, some of them are eaten here at our house too!). For the drop or rolled out type cookies, I start the day after Thanksgiving by making various cookie doughs, and freezing in zip bags (all clearly marked). Then I pick a day when I will be home.
After letting the frozen dough thaw overnight in the fridge, I bake off all of the doughs on the same day. So, on baking day, I am an assembly line of scooping my drop cookies with a small cookie scoop or rolling and cutting out, baking, cooling and storing. There is very little clean up to deal with too-all the messy stuff is dealt with when I am making my doughs.
