Take the dough out of the bowl and roll it on a cutting board into a log (approximately 12 inch long). Wrap the the dough log tightly in plastic wrap and put it in the freezer. Chill for at least 1 hour and up to 2 months.
15 minutes before you're ready to bake your cookies, preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a cookie sheet with some parchment paper.
Unwrap the dough from the plastic and slice it with a sharp knife into 1/4 inch thick cookies. Place the cookies about 1 inch apart from each other on the cookie sheet.
Bake the cookies in the center rack of your oven for about 12-15 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on the wire racks.
