Shape dough into two logs, about 1 ½” in diameter, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze for at least 1-2 hours, until dough is very firm. (Note: You can also shape into a disc and refrigerate 2 hours for rolled cookies) [Photo24735]
Preheat oven to 375F, line baking sheets with parchment or silicone.
Slice dough into rounds not more than ¼” thick – otherwise they will not be crisp.
Place on the sheets fairly close together – they don’t spread that much.
Bake 14 – 15 minutes.
