Refrigerate until very firm to the touch, about 3 hours. If desired, the raw dough can be frozen at this stage; remove from the freezer 15 minutes before slicing.
- With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Unwrap the dough and place it on a clean surface. Cut into slices about 3-mm (1/8-inch) thick and arrange on the sheets. Bake, one sheet at a time, until golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on the cookie sheets.
