It’s finally December! Yippee, yahoo!
Today I’m bringing you these Icebox Cookies that my husband’s grandma used to make for him. This recipe makes a great dough that’s easy to work with, perfect for throwing in your favorite add-ins, rolling up, wrapping and freezing for when you want freshly baked cookies.
These Icebox cookies are slightly flavored with almond extract, which is a nice touch especially with the added cherries that I put in. Once these cookies are cooled they have a nice little crunch around the edges but the center is moist and chewy. You can add in whatever you like such as nuts, raisins, dried fruit or leave the plain. In the ones I made I divided the dough into three and made one with green sprinkles, ones with maraschino cherries and I left one plain (just the way my husband like them!).
Since I wanted to keep this dough for the holidays I took the frozen rolls out, cut 3 slices off of each for these pictures and I wrapped it back up to save until Christmas. Perfect if you need a few or if you need a lot! I need to find more recipes where I can freeze the dough and just take out what I need. Seems so convenient at this time of year. If you know of any, please share with me!
