Divide dough into 2 equal portions, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hrs. Once chilled, roll dough out to 1/8 in thickness. After chilling, if dough seems too firm, let it soften before rolling. Once rolled, cut with cookie cutters, re-rolling scraps. Bake cookies in preheated 350 degree oven for 8-12 minutes. Cool completely.
