Grandma's Ice Box Cookies

"A family favorite that Grandma always includes in her cookie tins at Christmas. When melting the chocolate, adding in a few tablespoons of creamy peanut butter (or more, depending on your taste) makes the cookies easier to slice after freezing without really flavoring the chocolate. Easy to keep a frozen log in the freezer to bake in a hurry."

  • Cream together shortening and sugars, add eggs.
  • Mix flour and shortening mixture together.
  • Divide dough in half, place each half on a sheet of wax paper.
  • Shape dough into logs along length of wax paper. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  • Melt chocolate chips in double boiler (Grandma uses semi-sweet or mint flavored for a surprise, leaving out the peanut butter in that case).
  • Take one dough log out at a time and roll between 2 sheets of wax paper until it reaches across the paper, a little more than a 1/4" thick.
  • Spread half of chocolate on dough. Roll up, like a jelly roll. Return to freezer. Repeat with other log.
  • Allow dough to freeze for at least 30 minutes.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice cookies to desired thickness.
  • Bake on greased cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes.
