Brown Sugar Icebox Cookies

I don't remember which magazine I clipped this recipe out of. My best guess is Cooking Light. Anyhow, there is nothing better than be less than twenty minutes away from fresh baked homemade cookies at any given moment. There is always a least one log of these in my freezer at any given time.

Brown Sugar Icebox Cookies
Makes 24 cookies


  • 1 cup all-pupose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 salt
  • 1/4 cup butter or stick margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg white
  • cooking spray

1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a bowl, and set aside. Beat margarine at medium speed of a mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beating at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended. Add vanilla and egg white, and beat well. Add flour mixture, and stir until well-blended. Turn dough out onto wax paper; shape into a 6-inch log. Wrap log in wax paper; freeze 3 hours or up to one month.

2. To serve, preheat oven to 350°.

3. Cut log into 24 (1/4-inch) slices, and place slices 1 inch apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool on wire racks.
