Put half of the freshly made dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll it out to 1/4 inch thick. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
Put the rolled dough including the parchment paper, on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for 10 minutes or longer. Your dough will be chilled and ready to cut and bake.
Repeat with scraps after cutting cookies.
Bake at 325° F for 10 -15 minutes. Let cool.
Thin out the icing to be about a 20 second icing.
Pipe the outline of the circle with a number #4 round tip. Let it dry for 10 minutes.
Flood the circle in with about 6 second icing.
Let the icing dry for 24 hours.
