Roll out on parchment paper to just over ¼ inch thick.

Place in the freezer for 10 minutes or the refrigerator for about an hour.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and pull out your favorite cookie cutters.

The chilled dough should cut through perfectly giving you really clear lines and edges.

Tip: Use two sizes if you want to stack and tie up all pretty like I’ve done.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes-depending on the size and thickness of the cookies.

Keep an eye on them and pull before they start to brown to ensure they aren’t too dry.

Allow to cool for a few minutes before enjoying.
