3.Preheat oven to 375F. Unwrap 1 disc and place on lightly floured surface. Roll out dough with lightly floured rolling pin to 3/16-inch thickness. Cut dough with floured 2-1/4-inch round cookie cutter. Place cutouts 1-1/2 to 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Gently knead dough trimmings together; reroll and cut out more cookies.

Cut 1-inch centers out of scalloped cookies. Place cutouts 1-1/2 to 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Cut equal numbers of round and scalloped cookies.

Bake all cookies 8 to 10 minutes or until firm and light golden brown. Remove cookies to wire racks; cool completely.
