When ready to bake, preheat oven to 160°C. Line two baking trays with baking paper.

Cut each log into 14 x 1cm slices. Arrange on prepared trays.

Prick slices with a fork. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden.

For variety, add ½ cup chopped almonds or pecans to the dough or top each log with half a cherry or nut.
