Roll the dough between two sheets of parchment. Shift the layer of the dough on a baking tray and put into a freezer for 10 minutes more.

5. Remove the dough from the freezer, cut out circles. Put them on a baking tray at some distance from each other. Bake for about 10 minutes at 175 degrees. Place the ready cookies on a grill and let them cool completely.
