Slice & Bake Cookies by Elinor Klivans (Chronicle Books, 120 pages) $22 Who doesn't love the taste of freshly baked cookies? The smell of a sheet of them just out of the oven is a wonderful prelude to sampling the goods. But it can often be too much effort to do the baking for just a small amount of cookies. That thinking can be thrown out the window with this method.
By doing all of the prep in one session you can easily make enough cookie dough to last a considerable time and with the dough safely stored in your freezer, freshly baked cookies are never too much trouble.
Elinor Klivans provides an extensive selection of recipes with easy to follow instructions. They are listed in four categories: chewy, stuffed & sandwich, crisp, and savoury cookies. Before getting to the recipes she offers sound baking advice on ingredients, tools and equipment, storing and freezing and a number of other helpful topics.
Once you follow the methods to roll up your dough and properly freeze it then you'll see just how convenient it can be to have fresh cookies for your family and guests.
