    Preheat oven to 180°C (360°F).

    Remove dough from fridge and cut slices 0.5 cm (¼") thick.

    You will find that as you slice, the roll of dough will deform, so turn it as you go, and if necessary reshape the slices.

It is important not to overcook these cookies, otherwise they will become dry and less tempting.

You can use commercially prepared chocolate chips rather than breaking up a chocolate bar.
