Roll out and freeze: Place one disk between two sheets of floured parchment paper; roll out to an 1/8-inch thickness, lightly dusting dough with flour as needed. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters; if dough gets soft, chill 10 minutes. (To bake right away, follow directions in step 3.) Using a metal spatula with a thin blade, transfer cut-out shapes to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Re-roll scraps; cut more shapes. Repeat with remaining disk. Place baking sheet in freezer; once frozen, transfer shapes to a resealable plastic bag. Freeze up to 1 month.
Bake: Preheat oven to 325. Line baking sheets with parchment; bake, decorating if desired (see note, below), until edges are golden, 10 to 15 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through-this time range applies whether dough is frozen or not. Cool cookies 1 minute on sheets, and transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

The dough is very stiff- you will need little-to-no flour to roll these cookies. They're better the next day.
