Most cookie dough does not need to be chilled before baking.

Pam, it depends on the cookie. What are you baking?

I have better success w/ chilling most dough, especially those w/ a lot of butter. If hot weather/hot kitchen factor in, I'd chill dough.

I agree with emeralds. There are some that tell you to chill 24 hours. I think it has to do with saturating the flour.
