icebox cookies

Had lots of various things I was going to blog about.  But laziness has set in, so you get to see the cutest icebox cookies ever!  That I did not make but feel... if I put my mind and effort to it could accomplish such a baking feat.  :]

According to WiseGeek, icebox cookies are:
"Icebox cookies are cookies which are made from a dough which has been refrigerated or frozen, typically in a log shape. Although many people may associate these cookies with logs of frozen dough in supermarkets, there are a number of home icebox cookie recipes as well. The freezing or cooling makes the dough stiffer, and ideally suited to slicing into thin rounds for baking. There are numerous ways to make icebox cookies, and if you want unusually patterned cookies like pinwheels and checkerboard cookies, a refrigerated dough recipe is the way to go."

I stumbled across this more adorable lion icebookx cookie on and after a quick Google search (because annoyingly doesn't link to original posts), found my way to the original post on Diamonds for Dessert:

The turtle ones make me think of green tea cookies.  Mmmmm.  So my baking adventures still involves a box.  :oP  Yesterday I made some Double Chocolate Chip cookies courtesy of dear Abby's recipe.  (Dear Abby, get it?  haha)

-1 box Devil’s Food cake mix (Betty Crocker brand)
-1 stick of butter, softened
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-2 eggs
-1 cup chocolate chips

-Cream the butter with half of the cake mix
-Add the vanilla and eggs
-Add the rest of the cake mix and chocolate chips
-Drop spoonfuls of batter onto baking sheets
-Bake at 350 for 10-12 min

Super quick and easy, and the cookies come out thick and soft!  :-D  You can also jazz them up by adding toffee bits, macadamia nuts, white chocolate chips, etc.


  1. those are SO CUTE. the domo ones! AHHH! still, the technique looks hard to master!

  2. Brilliant!

    Turtle green tea one's would hit the spot for me :o)
