I actually love doing this because you can have freshly baked cookies in minutes. 

I suggest dropping by spoonfuls on a parchment lined pan and freeze.  Once frozen, transfer to a freezer bag or container.They will remain good for up to 6 weeks in freezer. 

To bake from frozen, simply take out as many as you need and allow cookies to sit at room temperature for about a few minutes (I usually keep them outside on counter ,just until when the oven got pre heated) prior to baking.
