Need help converting from a Drop cookie to a rolled (slice&bake)cookie

Question - the image shown is clearly a sliced cookie where the roll has been coated on sugar and then cleanly sliced into slices; yet, the recipe calls for similar to a drop cookie that’s rolled in sugar. I’m curious the difference, as I think the slice & bake version would be a cleaner presentation. How would I go about converting this to a slice & bake shortbread? Thank you for advice 😊

Divide the dough into 2 portions. Shape each portion into a log about
1 1/2-2 inches in diameter. Roll each log in sparkling sugar (not granulated.) Press gently to help the sugar adhere to the logs. Wrap tightly in parchment or waxed paper. Chill until firm (1-2 hours.) With a sharp knife, slice into 1/4 inch slices. Bake as directed. The cookies should have a slight give in the center as they will continue to firm up as they cool. (ALL cookies do this.)

Since it’s chilled and rolled anyhow I think you can literally just form the log, chill it that way, roll in sugar and slice away!
