Step 1

Combine all ingredients and mix together by hand or using a mixer on low speed until well combined.

Step 2

Wrap dough in plastic wrap in a 1 inch-thick brick, and chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours until firm.

Step 3

Once dough has chilled, preheat the oven to 350F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 4

Divide dough into two equal pieces. Rewrap one piece and place it back in the fridge.

Step 5

Working with the second piece, roll dough out on a lightly floured surface, about 1/8 to 1/4 inch-thick (thinner dough will make crispier cookies). Cut dough using a cookie cutter into desired shape, and place cookies on the baking sheet, leaving at least 1 inch between them.

Step 6

Continue re-rolling and cutting scraps until all dough is used up. Then repeat with the other piece of dough from the fridge.

Step 7

Bake for 8-12 minutes until just starting to turn brown on the edges. Remove from the oven, and let cookies cool for 5 minutes on sheet before moving to a cooling rack. Cool completely before decorating, or enjoy as is.
