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.

Cute, no?

These are perfect for casual gifts for your friends. You can make many people smile with these cookies!
