If using parchment paper, you can simply cut out the cookies right on the parchment paper, remove the excess dough from around the cookies and bake the cookies on the parchment paper on a cookie sheet.

OPTIONAL: Sprinkle with sugar crystals, sprinkles, or for Snickerdoodles with cinnamon before baking. Or when cooled, decorate with frosting or Royal Icing.
