    flower7's Note:

    From Martha Stewart Living. Made by a co-worker for a cookie exchange. The parchment-wrapped dough can be placed in a resealable plastic bag and frozen for 3 months. The dough can be sliced while partially frozen, then baked for the same amount of time. This recipe is easily doubled or tripled. Be sure to rotate the log a quarter turn after making each slice. This will help it maintain its shape.

      These are tasty little guys. I thought that they would have risen, but they were the same size going into the oven as when they came out. I did use the dried cranberries. I cut the roll in half and froze it. So have some in the freezer for later, I like that. DH ate 6 with a cup of coffee before dinner. :) flower7 thanks for posting.
