Roll out dough ¼ inch thick. I used 2 long wooden dowels that are 1/4 inch thick to make sure the cookies are the same thickness. I also roll between 2 sheets of waxed paper to make sure that I don’t over flour the dough.
 
5 Cut out desired shapes and place on parchment lined cookie sheets and bake until golden 15 to 18 min. Let cool on sheets on wire racks. Decorate with royal icing.
