On well floured surface, roll 1 piece of dough at a time (keep remainder refrigerated) to ⅛" thick. Cut in desired shapes with 2¼" cookie cutters. Place 1" apart on ungreased sheets. Press leftover scraps of dough together & chill. Bake cookies 9-12 minutes until very lightly browned. Remove to rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
