Step 5: Baking

Option no. 1: You can roll out the dough and cut out the cookies with cookie cutters.

Or Option no. 2: You can do it the ‘Spritz’ way and use a cookie press (I used OXO cookie press) and press cookies. Place/Press cookies onto ungreased baking sheet or silicone mat on baking sheet.

Add sprinkles if you want to make it look pretty.

Bake for about 8 minutes, or until just beginning to brown.
