Icebox cookies are terrific to keep in your freezer, meaning freshly baked treats are always within easy reach. These are basically butter cookies with a Nutella swirl, easily achieved by rolling out the dough, spreading with the nougat, and then rolling up into a log. Wrap it well in plastic wrap and freeze in a resealable bag, then slice and cut as needed. You can also just slice and bake the whole batch, without freezing.
- 230 grams butter
- 230 grams sugar
