Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  3. On lightly floured surface, roll out dough, 1 third at a time, until ¼ “(5 mm) thick.
  4. Using star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out stars; transfer to parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
  5. Bake in centre of oven for about 15 minutes or until crisp and golden. Cool on pan on racks.
