First, add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl or KitchenAid and mix until dough is formed.
Next, form dough into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
Remove dough from fridge and preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, line a bakings sheet with parchment paper.
Place dough between two sheets of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll dough out to 1/2 inch thickness.
Remove top sheet of parchment paper. Using cookie cut outs, cut out dough. Place cookies on baking sheet.
Continue this process until the dough is used up.
Next, bake for 6 to 8 minutes, depending on size and shape of cookies.
Remove pan from oven and allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 3 minutes before carefully transferring them to a cooling rack.
Finally, once cooled completely, dust with confectioner's sugar if desired.
