    3. Now add flour to the butter-sugar mixture and mix to form a dough.
    4. Flatten the dough into a disc, wrap in a plastic and refrigerate for an hour.
    5. On a flat surface, roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes and place the cookies on the prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate it for 10-15 minutes.
