Perfectly shaped cookies with a paper towel roll
Here is a tip for shaping sliced cookies. Roll the dough in a tube shape and wrap in plastic wrap. Cut an empty paper towel tube lengthwise and mold it around the dough to form a cylinder shape. Wrap tape or rubber band around the tube and refrigerate dough until firm. (Dough can also be frozen.)
When it’s time to bake, slice the cookies as you normally would. To keep the dough from getting warm and losing its shape, keep a portion of the dough in the mold as you are cutting slices.
I attempted to mold cookies with roof flashing a few years ago for the poppy seed recipe. This seems much less cumbersome.
