Sliced/Icebox Cookies

Also called refrigerator or slice-and-bake cookies, these are formed by shaping dough into a cylinder and then slicing into thin disks before baking.
• To shape dough into a log, roll it back and forth across a lightly floured cutting board or work surface.
• Chill the dough thoroughly before slicing.
• Use a thin, serrated knife to make clean slices.
• After every two or three cuts, roll the dough log a quarter turn to make sure it keeps its round shape and doesn't flatten out.
