Stir just until all ingredients are well blended; do not over mix. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill for about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll dough out on a lightly floured counter to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with your favorite Ann Clark cookie cutters, then transfer cookies onto cookie sheets that have been lined with parchment paper or silicone liners. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly colored. Let cookies cool slightly on cookie sheets, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Frost with Lemon Icing (recipe below) if desired before serving.
