Save time by freezing then baking
To save some time you can freeze the dough and bake later. All you need to do is make the dough as per the recipe, then roll it out into a log. Wrap the dough in baking paper and freeze for up to 3 months. When you are ready to bake remove it from the freezer and let it sit for 10 – 15 minutes or until slightly softened, before rolling and cutting out your cookie shapes ready to bake!
