Toffee Butter Icebox Cookies

Icebox cookies are just what you need to have around when you’re in a baking bind. If you’re ex­pecting guests and have plenty of other courses to cook, then you can save a bit of time by prep­ ping the cookie dough ahead of time, so you only need to slice and bake! I like to keep a few rolls of these on hand in my freezer for impromptu get-togethers, just like my grandma used to do.
