Lightly dust a clean, dry surface with flour and roll the cookie dough to a thickness of 1/8 inch. Use a cross cookie cutter or place a cross template on the dough and carefully cut around it with a small, sharp knife. You will need 12 crosses, plus a couple extra to allow for breakages. Arrange the dough on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or as the recipe instructs—essentially until they are firm and lightly browned at the edges.
