Don't know if this would help you out at all or not, but what I do is freeze the cookie dough, then thaw in the fridge a day or so before I want to bake them. Then they're still fresh baked. There's really no impact on the flavor at all. Just squish the dough into a log and roll in parchment paper, fold in or twist the ends and throw them ina ziploc bag. I just write the kind of cookie, temp, and cooking time on the bag so I don't have to drag the recipes back out. About half my freezer right now is cookie dough for Christmas!
