Cut into rounds or other shapes using a lightly floured cookie cutter. Place on the prepared baking sheets and place in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. (This will firm up the dough so the cookies will maintain their shape better when baked.) Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned at the edges. If your oven does not bake evenly, exchange the pans on the racks half way through baking time. Cool cookies on a wire rack.
* If you like to bake you might be like me and get tired of trying to cut parchment paper to the right size. I discovered these pre-cut parchment paper sheets several years ago and have never looked back. They're the perfect size for a half sheet pan and a pack lasts forever. (Unless you're a crazy cook like me - I just ran out but I must say, even for me, they lasted a long time!)
