Rolling Out Dough On Countertops
Start with the rolling pin in the center of your dough disk. Roll with light, even pressure to the edge. Rolled dough should be about 1/8 in. thick; as a guide for consistent thickness, place a wooden dowel rod on either side of dough or use Rolling Pin Guide Rings.
Push cutter straight down to cut perfect shapes. Dip cutter into flour between cuts to prevent sticking.
Lift away dough around cut shapes and store for your next batch. Bake cookies following recipe directions.
