Roll out the dough until it’s about ½ an inch thick.  Cut out 12-14 star cookies and place about an inch apart on lined cookie sheet.

Note: To re-roll dough, be sure to piece the cut-up dough together (rather than re-shaping it into a ball and rolling) because this will keep all the colors in-tact.

Bake your star cookies for 6-7 minutes. Carefully remove from the cookie sheet and  allow to cool on a wire rack.

  You could sprinkle each one of the star cookies with additional sugar while they are still hot if you wish.  But you don’t need it, they are sweet and delicious
