    From my all time favorite cookbook - "The Blue Ribbon Country Cookbook" This dough works great freshly made, or can be frozen and used later.

      Preferred method to baking - use parchment paper! Measure and cut pieces to fit on your cookie sheets. No need to grease cookie sheets. If not using parchment, lightly grease cookie sheets.

      After cutting all the dough, pull away excess dough. Gather into a ball, rewrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

      Carefully slide parchment onto cookie sheet.
    13. 13
      Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until just set in middle. Time will depend greatlyon the size and shape of your cutters. Edges of cookies should not change color. Bottoms should be a VERY pale golden color.
    14. 14
      Let cookies cool on baking sheet for a few minutes. Carefully slide parchment off of cookie sheet and onto wire rack or clean counter to cool completely. Use thin spatula, and line counter with paper, if not using parchment.
