Easy Icebox Cookies

You guys. I could not be more excited about today’s post. Not only do we have these delectable Icebox Cookies (aka cookies you can store in the freezer and take out whenever your heart desires), but I’m also sharing a first look at our BRAND NEW KITCHEN!

Alright so here’s the deal. Before we even found our house, I reached out to my friends at Cafe Appliances to see if they could provide appliances for our soon-to-be new home. You see, last spring I did a partnership with Cafe Appliances where I was featured in a series of video ads on their site (you can see a tid bit here!).

And the more I played around with their ranges, refrigerators, and dishwashers, the more I became obsessed with them. From their customizable finishes (you can select the finish of both your appliance and its hardware), to their sleek, minimalist style, Cafe Appliances are the perfect combination of modern technology and timeless design.

So say hello to my new kitchen and the Cafe Appliances that fit perfectly into our space. I got the 36” Café™ ENERGY STAR® French-Door Refrigerator, the Café™ Smart Stainless Steel Interior Dishwasher and the Café™ 30″ Double-Oven Range.

Not only do Cafe Appliances look good, but they were made with the modern cook in mind. For example, through Wifi technology I can preheat my oven from my bedroom. Similarly, I can start my dishwasher remotely, whether I’m in the next room or 100 miles away.

And the refrigerator, you guys! They really went all out with this fridge. It has LED lighting throughout the crisper drawers, so I don’t have to open them up all the way in order to see what’s in them. It also has an interior water dispenser, leaving my kitchen with clean sightlines. And the lower freezer is tall and deep, giving me plenty of space for homemade ice cream, frozen vegetables, and of course these ICE BOX COOKIES!!!

Now throughout quarantine I’ve found myself baking for friends and family. I’m talking banana bread, brownies, babkas… the WORKS, you guys. The works. There’s something so wholesome and feel-good about homemade baked goods. And though we’re separated physically, I’ve found that baking for my loved ones makes them (and me!) so happy. 

The thing I’ve made the most for people? Cookies. They’re easy, delicious, and crowd-pleasing. And these Ice Box Cookies are no different.

What are Ice Box Cookies?

So now let’s get to these chocolate chip icebox cookies. Icebox cookies (also sometimes called refrigerator cookies), are slice and bake cookies that you can keep in your fridge or freezer (formerly known as an “icebox”). I always love to have a log of cookie dough in my freezer for emergencies. You know, a surprise visit, midnight snack, bad day kind of emergency. That way I can have cookies on a whim at all times. Plus, slice and bake cookies allow you to make just a few cookies instead of a big ol’ batch you can’t finish.

Ingredients for Icebox Cookies

These easy icebox cookies call for basic pantry staples that you probably have on hand. Plus they’re super customizable, so if you don’t have chocolate on hand, you can always mix in dried fruit, chopped nuts, espresso powder, or keep them plain!

  • Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
  • Unsalted Butter
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Brown Sugar
  • Egg Yolks
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Chocolate

How to make chocolate chip icebox cookies:

These cookies are as easy to make as they are to consume. Simply beat together the butter and sugar. Add the egg yolks and vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients and fold in the chocolate! Divide the dough in half and roll into 2 cylinders with about a 2 inch diameter and pop in your freezer. Whenever you’re ready to bake, simply slice off ¼ inch circles of dough and bake!

It’s as easy as that! Happy baking, love bugs!

Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped

Instructions

  1. In a stand mixer fit with the paddle attachment combine the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar, beating until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down the bowl.
  2. Add the egg yolks and vanilla extract and beat until fully incorporated.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix to combine.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and beat until combined and no streaks of flour remain. Last, add in the chopped chocolate.
  5. Divide the dough in half and roll each piece into a cylindrical log, about 1 ½ inches diameter. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for at least an hour (or freeze for up to 3 months).
  6. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a very sharp thin knife to slice off ¼ inch thick cookies. Slice off as many as you want for the moment and rewrap and place the remainder of the dough back in the freezer. Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes, or until the edges are set and light golden brown. Allow to cool before enjoying with a glass of milk.

  1. Hi Sofi, your kitchen is gorgeous! I’m looking to buy a set of café stainless steel appliances. Did you change the handles and knobs to the bronze? Or are those the stainless? Thanks in advance!

  2. The red velvet cookies are extremely good I did them and for that meausurment many extra cookies came

  3. Love your kitchen. Can you share more details about your cabinets and counters? What material? What color? Where from?

    • hi Jasmine! Thank you so much for your sweet message. The counter tops are marble. I’m not positive where the cabinets are from as we did not build the house, but they are painted solid wood. Wish I could be of more help 🙂

  4. The kitchen appliances are gorgeous and I love the idea of keeping a log of dough on hand. My friend is going to have a baby soon. I think I’ll make these so I can have cookies ready for her.
    I’m so happy for you. It’s such a beautiful kitchen and I love your recipes.
