Make dough using creaming method. Beat dough in stand mixer until it pulls away from the sides.
Chill dough in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Preheat over to 375 °F.
Roll out dough to 1/4 in thick. Use confectioner’s sugar to keep dough from sticking, not flour. Work with small sections of dough, keeping the unused dough in the fridge.
Bake for 8-9 minutes. If you baking two trays, it might be 10 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet before trying to remove.
