Remove from refrigerator and let dough sit on the kitchen counter for 1 hour or until soft. Cut dough in half and place on floured counter or cutting board. Roll dough into a big circle about 1/4 inch thick. Pick your favorite cookie cutters and cut out desired shapes. Transfer cut out dough to cookie sheets to bake.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes or until edges just start to brown.
Remove cookies to cooling rack and cool completely before icing!
Do ahead tip: Mix before bed, refrigerate overnight, cut out and bake in the morning.
