Wrap the logs in plastic wrap and chill for at least four hours, or up to two days. Preheat the oven 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Slice the dough into quarter inch coins and place them on the prepared baking sheets one inch apart. Bake until the coins are golden brown, twelve to fifteen minutes.
