  • In a seperate bowl, combine the flour and baking soda; gradually beat flour into the creamed mixture until combined.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces and shape each into an 8 to 10 inch roll.
  • Wrap each individually in wax paper and then in aluminum foil; label, date and freeze for up to 6 months.
  • To prepare the cookies: Place the dough in refrigerator and thaw overnight. Slice the dough into 1 inch thick slices and cut each slice in fourths; form into a ball and if desired roll in cinnamon sugar.

    Another one of Paula's wonderful recipes. I only made 1/4 of the recipe since I only wanted to make one log of cookies this time. I like the idea that you can make 4 rolls and freeze them for later use. Made for Fall PAC 2012.

    I used a brown sugar substitute for this recipe, but other than that I followed the recipe as written. The cookies turned out perfectly. I froze three of the rolls and baked the fourth one. The cookies were light, not too sweet and goes great with a cup of tea or coffee. I have plenty of cookies from the one roll. The bonus is I have three more rolls in the freezer and can have yummy cookies any time I am in the mood. :) Thanks for another wonderful recipe, Paula. This one is going straight into the keeper file. Made for October 2012 Aus/NZ Swap.
