Step 3: Cut out the cookies and bake them.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Sprinkle some flour on a clean, dry cutting board and spread the flour around. You should have a light layer of flour covering the area where you will roll out the dough.
  3. Sprinkle a little flour on your rolling pin (if you don't have a rolling pin, you can use a tall drinking glass).
  4. Roll out the dough so that it is about 1/4 inch thick. If the dough is sticking to the rolling pin, sprinkle some more flour on top of the dough.
  5. If you have cookie cutters, use them to cut out the cookie shapes. Or, lay the shape patterns you cut out in Step 1 on top of the dough. Cut around the patterns with a butter knife. Be sure to cut out some "stands" if you want your cookies to stand up.
  6. Place the cut out cookies and stands on a cookie sheet and bake them for about 8 to 10 minutes. They are done when the edges of the cookies turn golden brown.
  7. Use potholders to remove the cookie sheet from the oven and place the hot cookie sheet on a potholder, trivet, or other surface that will not be damaged by the heat.
  8. Use a metal spatula or pancake turner to remove the cookies from the cookie sheet. You can put the cookies on a cooling rack or a clean countertop. Let the cookies cool for 5 to 10 minutes before you decorate them.
