Fun icebox cookies

on April 21, 2014

Have you ever tried making icebox cookies?
They are also called refrigerator cookies. The cookie dough is rolled into a log shape, chilled in the refrigerator or freezer until firm, then sliced and baked.

The common icebox cookies are pin wheels and two-by-two check pattern like English Batternberg cake. These are fairly easy to make. But I give a little twist.

I Like making ones with animal faces and cute patterns. I need to plan well for these and it is a little complicated task, but it is a lot of fun!

First, you make coloured dough. I use cocoa powder for brown and green tea powder for green.

You make all the parts, layer them and roll it like a sushi roll. Chill in the fridge to harden a little. Slice the dough and bake in the oven.

Slicing the first piece is always so exciting! I get a little nervous, too.
I tried a few new designs including bunnies.

They are ready to go into the oven.
