Make dough. Add the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl 1 cup at a time until the dough comes together and the flour is fully mixed in.

Cut out your cookies out. After an hour remove dough from the refrigerator and roll out to ¼” thickness. Using your cookies cutters cut out your cookies. Place each cut out on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Press dough scraps back together and roll out again until all of the dough is used.
