  6. Break off part of the dough and roll it out thinly on a well floured surface.
  7. Use a biscuit cutter (about 3 inches), an overturned cup or glass (preferably with thin edgeor anything else that is round and will be able to cut through the dough and press out as much circles from the dough as possible.
  8. Save the scraps, scrunch them into a little ball and refrigerate until it’s firm again.(Also keep the rest of the dough refrigerated when you’re not using it.)
  9. Put the sugar into a bowl and press one side of the circle of dough into the sugar.
