I love slice ‘n’ bake cookies because they are super quick and easy to make, and you can just keep the dough logs in the fridge and slice ‘n’ bakeΒ whenever you crave a cookie or two. The base ingredients for this recipe are butter, icing sugar, egg, and flour – that’s just 4 simple ingredients! The other ingredients are just for flavour.

To make these cookies, simply combine the butter, icing sugar, egg, vanilla extract, salt, and flour together using a handheld or stand mixer. Fold in the chocolate chips, then turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into a log, wrap in clingfilm, then chill for at least 4 hours. I like to leave mine in the fridge overnight.

Now the fun part – slicing and baking!

Chocolate Chip Slice β€˜n’ Bake Cookies

Deliciously buttery, melt-in-your-mouth cookies stuffed full of chocolate chips!
Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 37 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter 170g, softened
  • 3/4 cup icing/powdered sugar 90g
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups plain/all-purpose flour 250g
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips 90g

Instructions

  1. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter until smooth and creamy. Add the icing sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, and beat until combined. Add the flour and salt, and beat until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and shape into a 12-inch long log (about 2 inches wide), or two 6-inch logs. Tightly wrap the log in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours, and up to 5 days. I like to chill mine overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4, and line a baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Set aside.
  4. Slice the log into thick slices, and place them onto the prepared baking tray. Bake for 12 - 14 minutes until lightly brown around the edges. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

Cookies stay fresh covered at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 1 week. They also freeze well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge. Cookie dough logs freeze well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before slicing and baking.

    OMG how perfect are these?! This is such a good idea – in fact, it’s a dangerous idea. I will definitely be taking your suggestion and slice off a couple (or four or five) cookies off the log at a time!
