If a dessert is dry or over baked – serve it with ice cream or whipped cream.  If a cake you can save it with a simple syrup – a flavored one that goes with the dessert – lemon, rum, coffee — and brush on the cake before you frost.  This is good even if not over baked.  If a dessert falls apart or is dry as – turn it into a trifle.  Layer with whip cream or ice cream, chocolate sauce or puddings, fruit or fruit sauces.

I like to make extra cookie dough whenever I make cookies.  In many cases, I can roll the extra dough into a log and wrap in parchment or plastic wrap and freeze until the next time I need fresh baked cookies.  Look at the bottom of the oatmeal cookie recipe for more instruction.
