For molded cookies: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Press the dough into ungreased cookie mold/s and bake for 10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are just light brown. Remove from the molds while still hot.
For pastry bag or cut-out cookies: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets immediately and cool on wire racks.
Note: To make the cut-out cookies, chill dough until chilled enough to roll out.
