Heat oven to 350°F. Make cookie dough as directed on pouch for cutout cookies.
On work surface sprinkled lightly with flour, roll dough 1/4 inch thick. Use 2-inch round cutter to cut out 40 cookies, rerolling dough as necessary. Place cookies on large ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
