Step 8: Use a plastic wrap to enclose the logs. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours or until firm or up to 3 days.

Step 9: When ready to bake, position the oven rack in the centre and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.

Step 10: Remove the plastic wrap from 1 dough and slice it into 1/4-inch thick rounds.

Step 11: On an ungreased cookie sheet, place an inch apart from the rounded doughs.

Step 12: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 9 to 11 minutes or until golden.
