This is a great time saver and the cookies taste great! Mix, roll, freeze, defrost, slice, roll and bake. It is that easy!

This dough is perfect to make before busy periods like Christmas or if you frequently need to take baked goods to school or work at the last minute. They also make great gifts with a card with baking instructions.

I stretch the dough as I put it down as it makes it easy to roll

Roll the dough into two logs in the baking paper.

Rolling in baking paper stops sticky fingers

Twist the ends of the baking paper and secure with a piece of string/ribbon.
