I then put the cookies back in the fridge for 20-30 min. I needed to move them apart to finish the cutting but they were so warm by now I could not move them without them distorting. I cut them using guidelines on my knife and the registration marks. The basic cuts were small right angle isosceles triangles off the corner to the middle. I highlighted it in red here for you.
I made the dough Friday while my daughter napped and I worked on cookies till just about dinner time Saturday night. I also baked the cakes Saturday and then probably took 2.5 hrs Sunday to make chill and decorate cakes. Its was really a whole weekend of baking.
