  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease cookie sheet with shortening or spray with cooking spray.

Divide dough in half. Shape each half into 10-inch roll. Place rolls 5 inches apart on cookie sheet; flatten to 3-inch width.
  3. Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until set and edges begin to brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool 10 minutes. With serrated knife, cut rolls diagonally into 1/2-inch slices. Place slices cut side down on ungreased cookie sheets.
