The recipe is from Martha Stewart and it is so easy because you can make the dough ahead of time, keep it in the freezer, then just slice and bake what you want when you want! I have used it to make Chai Tea Icebox Cookies and Cranberry Citrus Shortbread Icebox Cookies.

This recipe for Caramel and Cashew Icebox Cookies makes two logs of dough.

The logs can be refrigerated for up to four days or frozen for up to three months; you just have to thaw before slicing and baking.




These Caramel and Cashew Icebox Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks but I have a feeling they won't last that long!

If you don't like caramel you can add milk choc chips or if you can't eat nuts you could add raisins.

Here are some other Mix-in Ideas

Mix in grated zest of 2 oranges and 1/2 cup dried cranberries
