Refrigerator Cookie Facts
To make refrigerator cookie dough easier to slice, use nuts and fruits that are finely chopped. If the nuts and fruit are too large, the cookie dough may break apart when sliced.
Wrap dough tightly to prevent it from drying out in the refrigerator. Refrigerate dough until firm.
Generally, the dough can be refrigerated up to 1 week or frozen up to 6 months.
To keep a nice round shape for refrigerated cookie dough, place each roll inside a tall glass and place the glass on its side in the refrigerator. The rounded glass will prevent the bottom of the roll from flattening out. A cardboard tube from a roll of paper towels or wrapping paper will also work.
Use a thin sharp knife to slice through the dough. Cut one roll at a time, keeping additional rolls refrigerated until ready to use. After each slice, rotate the roll to avoid having one side that's first.
