Cookie Dough Log Rolls

WEEK OF TREATS – DAY 2

I’m giving a few of these Cookie Dough Log Rolls to neighbors as gifts this holiday. You can give yummy homemade cookies, but don’t have to bake them right away. Also, who doesn’t love homemade cookie dough? Yes, please! They’re a perfect treat for on the go or as a midnight snack too. With these dough rolls, you can have cookies any time you want!

  1. This is so much better than making a dry cookie mix in a jar. Everything is fixed and ready to bake. I love this idea. Thanks so much.

  2. Josh – Good question. I’m sure you could call the post office and they’d let you know if or how to send food. I do freeze mine, so maybe that would help it last. OR just make a dough that doesn’t use eggs.

  3. Hey! If anyone reads this…I had a quick question…I want to do this and mail it someone, but b/c there are eggs in cookie dough, can you mail it? does it need to be refrigerated? or would the cooking in the oven kill any problems?

    thanks,

  4. OK, this is truly one of the best ideas I’ve seen so far! We have a couple of new neighbors that have very small children. I remember those days of having no extra time, so this would be a perfect gift for them. Thanks for sharing! :)

  5. I do this, too! I spiced it up with halfies. I make one log of oatmeal cookies and one log of choco-chip, then after a lil bit of fridge time I slice ’em lengthwise and stick the opposites together so it’s a MIXED cookie log. People LOVE it….and I love making people smile….

    thanks for your blog . It is AWESOME. I am going to add you to my linkage….

  6. Awesome idea! I like this so much more than the gifts in a jar. These would be great gifts given alone or in a basket with some gourmet coffee or hot cocoa mix.

    I’d better get busy….I have a whole list of people to make these for!

  7. Also, if you are using this for neighbor gifts for Christmas, you could attach the saying, “Thought you could use a little extra dough for Christmas.”

  8. Hey, that’s a super-dee-duper idea! It would be great for families with kids! To give more than one at a time to the same person, you could probably slide them into a decorated wine gift bag…. or a brown paper bottle bag (from the wine shop)… Fun!
