Slice and Bake Ginger Spice Cookies

The only problem with cookies is controlling how many get eaten, especially if you have a cookie monster in the house. Slice and Bakes are the perfect answer. Just make the dough and freeze it in a log. Then, just slice off a couple and bake them. You gotta love portion control! Did I forget to mention how great these taste? Last night I served ginger-snaps with fresh strawberries and whipped cream to our dinner guests. They are the perfect desert for entertaining. Just through them in the oven while you are clearing the table. Nothing like cookies fresh from the oven!
