How do I make a cookie "log"?
How do you shape a cookie log with parchment paper? I was making Samin Nosrat's cardamom semolina shortbread cookies, and the instructions simply say to make a log with parchment paper before refrigerating the dough. How do you use the parchment paper to accomplish this, and why? To avoid warming the dough with your body heat? Can't I just make a log on a floured surface and then wrap and refrigerate?
