When you make cookie dough, double the batch and freeze some. Rather than freezing a large batch of cookie dough (this would take some time to thaw), I prefer to freeze the individual cookie scoops. Yesterday I made a double batch of chocolate chip cookie dough. While some scoops were in the oven baking, some were flash freezing in the freezer. I just placed wax paper on a cookie sheet and scooped the dough onto it and placed it in the freezer for 15 - 20 minutes.
Once the dough is frozen, the cookie dough balls can be tossed together into one freezer bag and into the freezer.These can be thawed and baked individually or in a batch.
