Chocolate Chip-Walnut Mandelbrot
Divide the dough into four even pieces, about 13 ounces each if you have a scale.
Sprinkle the logs heavily with coarse white sugar, if desired.
Remove them from the oven, and reduce the oven temperature to 300°F.
Spritz the logs lightly with water; this will make them easier to cut.
Allow them to cool for 10 minutes.
Place the pieces on edge, quite close together, on the baking sheets, and return them to the oven.
