thickness between two sheets of wax paper. Remove top piece of wax paper.
Witha 2-1/2 inch round cookie cutter, cut out as many circles from teh
dough as you can. Remove scraps of dough and refrigerate for second
rolling; cut circles in half to make half moon shapes. Carefully remove
cookie halves from bottom sheet of wax paper; place cookies on lightly
greasted cookie sheets; sprinkle lightly with granulated sugar. Repeat with

cookies dry for 3 hours.

bottoms. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Cookies will have an
outside crust but will be soft inside {gosh, doesn't that sound like Al
Martin? <grin> }.
