Step 8: Forming the Cookies
The dough should look like a log.
I cut off the ends to get a good shape for the cookies.
Then with a knife cut cookies at about half an inch or you can make them a little thicker if you like.
Once they are sliced add them to the parchment lined baking or cookie sheet(s).
