I like to do that with cookies.  Especially when I don't necessarily want to have all of these cookies laying around just waiting to be eaten.  Bake a batch of cookies, put them in a few freezer bags.  Then, when you want to bring out a few to enjoy, you don't have to eat them all.  And of course, they last longer.  Score!
