My frozen choc. chip cookie dough is coming out a bit dry when baked. Its my gift to my daughter in law and I'm panicked. Any suggestions for the dough at this point?

Have you tried taking them out of the oven a minute or two earlier?

Also - don't know what temp you're cooking at, but you might try increasing temp by 25 (350 to 375 for instance) and dropping cook time by 2 min or so. Keeps the center soft while the exterior gets crunchy.
