I will be making the Momofuku Compost Cookies for Christmas. Would like to know if the dough excluding the add ins can be made ahead of time (like today) and frozen. I would then thaw the dough, incorporate the add ins and proceed with the recipe. Anyone tried this? Will this really save me time? Any suggestions will be helpful. Thanks.
I have included the recipe
Makes 3 dozen cookies. (To see this recipe in process, check out Picturing Copycat Momofuku Compost Cookies.)

2.In your Kitchen Aid or a large mixing bowl, cream together the creamables.
3.In a small bowl, combine the wet ingredients and whisk together until smooth.
4.Add the combined wet ingredients to the creamables. Mix together until well incorporated.
5.In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients. Using a spatula, fold together until evenly distributed.
6.Slowly add the dry ingredients to the combined creamables and wet ingredients. Mix until evenly combined.
7.Shape dough into balls--about 2 tablespoons each.
8.Place dough balls about 2 inches apart on Silpat- or parchment paper-lined cookie sheets.
