Slice & Bake Macadamia Nut Cookies

If you’d like to make the cookie dough ahead of time, these can be formed into dough logs and frozen for creating slice and bake cookies.

Once the dough is formed, overturn it onto a very lightly floured surface. Use a dough scraper or your hands to lightly shape the dough into a log, rolling it gently to ensure it’s an even thickness throughout.

Wrap the log in parchment paper and freeze until solid. If you have a large family, leave the log intact and wrap it tightly with freezer wrap, plastic wrap, or vacuum seal it.

If you have a smaller household, cut the log into halves or thirds, and wrap each section. Return to the freezer until you’re ready for fresh delicious Macadamia nut cookies!

Slice & Bake Directions

Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Remove the frozen log section and cut it into 1/2″ slices. Place them 2″ apart on a Silpat or parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes.
