During the holidays there's nothing more fun than indulging in delicious food and drink with friends and family. But even with the best of intentions, a great host can run out of time. Cue this smart holiday baking shortcut: cookie dough that's prepped ahead of time and stored away in the freezer. Make the dough this month, so you're stocked and ready when entertaining season hits.


In the video: To make the freezer-favourite icebox cookie, roll out the dough into a log, wrap it in wax paper, and freeze for up to a month.
