Or, leave logs plain and decorate cookies with melted chocolate after baking. Wrap each log in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours or overnight.

- Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
- Dip plain cookies in melted chocolate, or drizzle chocolate over cookies with fork or spoon, if desired. Place cookies on wire racks until chocolate is set. Store in airtight container.
