Ingredients

Directions

  1. On a large piece of parchment or waxed paper, gently form 1/2 recipe all-in-one cookie dough into an 8-inch log.

  2. Fold one short end of paper over log; wedge a baking sheet against log. Holding other end of paper at an angle, push baking sheet against log while pulling on paper, creating a smooth, compact log.

  3. Gently roll log in desired topping to coat; wrap in parchment. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.

  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Unwrap log, and place on a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, slice into 1/4-inch-thick rounds.

  5. Place rounds on parchment-lined baking sheets, 1 inch apart. Bake until pale golden, 13 to 15 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through.

Cook's Notes

You may use nonpareils, sanding sugar, candied ginger, chocolate chunks, shredded coconut, or nuts as your desired topping.

    This is an excellent recipe! I baked the icebox cookies plain, and then dipped half of each cookie into melted choclate, they turned out perfect! I tried this recipe because I was wanting to bake some cookies and I happened to have all of these ingredients....I was pleasantly surprised with how well they came out, they are yummy!

    Common Sense fellow bakers. Anyone who would not see this as a mistake in the recipe has no business baking.

    Adina from Everyday Food here. There was an error in this recipe -- the oven should not be preheated until the cookie dough comes out of the refrigerator. No need to preheat for 2 hours, of course! The corrected version should appear shortly.

    Nice to have a basic dough recipe which is flexible enough to make different cookies. I preheat my oven as soon as I have finished making the dough. No need to preheat when you are doing the mixing. Parchment paper is nice to use for easy cleaning on the cookie sheets. I also use Silpat (silicone mat), cookies slide out easily (save $$ on parchment paper).
