Slice-and-bake cookies are the perfect make-ahead treats. Keep logs of dough in your freezer, and then slice and bake the cookies as you need them. Simply turn the dough out onto a surface lined with plastic wrap and shape into a log. Wrap the plastic wrap around around the log, twisting the ends tightly to ensure a more cylindrical shape. Freeze until firm. Use a thin-bladed knife to slice the cookies, and turn the log frequently to prevent it from flattening on one side.
