To bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Cut cookies out of the rolled dough and place on the prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies for 8 to 12 minutes (less time for soft, longer for crispy), depending on thickness. Let cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet, then remove to a wire rack. This will help to prevent breakage.
