I think I'm going to bump this just to share my DON'T EVER DO THIS tip...
It might be only me, but I:
1. Rolled first 1/3 of dough out between two wax paper sheets
2. Place that in fridge WITHOUT top sheet
3. Rolled second 1/3 of dough out (same way) and placed ON TOP OF first rolled batch - still no top sheet.
4. Repeated with last 1/3 and then topped with wax paper and let sit overnight.
So, I had three layers of cookie dough (with ONE sheet of wax paper in between) STUCK like glue to eachother, and had to let them "thaw" before I pulled them apart and started over.
My DD called me a "big dummy" and fell off the couch laughing at me... she'll get hers!
*Cake Princess, you are a life saver... I save the url for your tips in my favorites. Re: your other tips...I used to cut my own templates when working with FILO clay, but never ever thought to do it with cookies! I use MMF for my "icing" so the template would work for that too! Thanks a bunch!!*
