Place the cut cookie shapes onto a lined baking tray. ( line the tray with parchment paper or the cookies will stick to the tray)
Bake in the Preheated oven at 200°C for about 12 minutes. ( bake for 15 minutes if you want a little harder ones)
Leave the cookies on the baking tray to cool. ( do not try to remove them when still hot or they will break)
