If you make a lot of slice-and-bake cookies and you’re not storing it in paper towel rolls, this post may change your life.

Next time you wrap up a schlong (excuse me: log) of dough, chill it inside a cardboard roll. It’ll keep the dough from getting smashed, and more importantly, it’ll keep the bottom of the log from flattening out as it sits.

  1. How about a recipe for cookies to go in the tube….?

    1. Mary Beth, I talked about the recipe on my FB page earlier today. It’s homemade Nutter Butters, from Casey Barber’s new cookbook Classic Snacks Made from Scratch! Recipe post coming here later in the week.

  2. Just the other day thinking there must be a use for those cardboard rolls… besides letting Little One use them as makeshift trumpets 🙂 Thanks!

  3. I wish I had read this post yesterday. I baked Heidesand cookies, which are also slice and bake and I had to reshape them each individually after they came out of the fridge to make them round again. Just what I wanted to be doing with my free time….. 🙁

    1. Boo! Next time it’ll be so much easier. Meanwhile, I’m not familiar with Heidesand cookies but I just googled & they look fab. Mind telling me a little about them? Are they like regular shortbread cookies, or different somehow?
