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 other half of dough. Use any scraps of dough for second rolling. Let cookies dry for 3 hours. Bake in a 400~ oven for 12 minutes or until cookies are browned on the 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> }. Makes 2-1/2 dozen cookies.
