Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (170 degrees C). Line the cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Roll the dough to 1/4 inch thickness on a surface that has been sprinkled with confectioners' sugar and changed it up a bit and added cinnamon sugar too roll them into tiny balls and place on the baking tray
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. When done, they will be light brown and soft in the center. Remove and cool on wire racks.
