Divide dough into fourths. Work with one portion of dough at a time, keeping remaining dough chilled until ready to use.

Roll one portion of dough to 1/8- inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut with assorted shaped cutters; place 1 inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 7 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets, and cool on wire racks. Repeat with remaining dough.
