Yes. Any basic buttery cookie dough like this will freeze very well. If you shape it into the fork-squashed balls before freezing, you might even be able to bake them straight from the freezer, although they might end up a little thicker if you don't thaw them a bit before baking.

Totally freezable! And I'm with Dinner at 10 (above) roll them into balls before hand, they'll thaw faster!

You can also freeze in a roll, and make them into a slice and bake option. This is an old trick of mine for this time of year -- freezing lots of different cookies doughs in rolls as if they are slice and bake (whether they are or not) then pulling as need from freezer. Fabulous for unexpected guests, or simply when you want two cookies after dinner...
