I have been encouraged to share a cookie-baking trick with you.
After mixing up a batch of cookies, scoop balls of cookie dough onto a plate. Put the plate in the freezer. When the balls are frozen, transfer them into a Ziploc bag and return them to the freezer.
They will keep in there indefinitely and can be pulled out in any number to be baked. This allows for fresh, hot cookies in a few minutes.
