My question is: which is better to freeze, cookie dough or baked cookies?
Sent by JenEditor: Jen, we would probably vote for cookie dough, since nothing beats a truly fresh-baked cookie.

Then each cookie is already pre-formed; all you have to do is throw a dozen on a cookie sheet and bake.
Here are a couple of helpful posts on freezing dough and cookies:
Readers, any thoughts on freezing cookies ahead of time?
