Skip buying the slice and bake dough at the store and give these easy cookies a try! A few weeks ago I shared the base sugar cookie dough recipe for these cookies and now today I'm sharing this version for the holidays.

If you love peppermint and white chocolate, these cookies are for you!

Where do these cookies get their name?

The icebox was the predecessor to the refrigerator and recipes like this one started popping up in the 1930's. 

They're SO easy using simple fridge and pantry ingredients for the dough and they can be refrigerated or frozen, so they're ready to use anytime you have a sweet tooth craving. Just defrost from the freezer or slice and bake from the refrigerator and in minutes, these delicious cookies will be ready to eat.

Recipe tips:


  • Dough can be wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated overnight or refrigerated for a few days. This is a great make ahead dough for fresh cookies. 
  • The dough can also be frozen. Tightly wrap the cookie dough log in plastic wrap, then into a freezer bag. Freeze for up to two months, thaw in the refrigerator before slicing.
  • Baked cookies can be frozen in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to one month. Thaw and serve.
  • Don't skip refrigerating the dough. This prevents the dough from spreading as the cookies bake.
  • Make sure to use the spoon and level technique when measuring your flour so the dough is the right consistency.
  • If you'd like to frost these cookies, cool completely, then frost with your favorite frosting. We love this cream cheese frosting.
