Preheat oven to 400°. Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.
NOTE: After they are cool, I like to make an icing out of powdered sugar and milk and add a little food coloring. (I don't measure anything for it! I just get it to the thickness I like) Then I brush the icing on with a pastry brush and let it dry. You could also use your favorite decorator's icing.
