Hi
You can actually roll right now-between two sheets of parchment or wax paper. When I chill it, I usually shape it into a flat rectangle and wrap in syran(about an inch thick).

I agree with Momlovestocook, in the past I have just rolled it up in a ball and allowed it to chill (whew) it is a work out when you take it out to roll (very hard) I roll my dough the same size as my cookie sheet(between parchment paper) and when it is done chilling I take one side of the parchment paper off, put dough andremaining parchment paper on to the cookie sheet cut my cookies directly on the cookie sheet. I remove the excess and pop them in the oven. For me this saves me some time. Hope I am makes sense icon_redface.gif

if you don't refrigetate it for too long (less than 1 hour, I'd say) it won't be too bad to roll out. I'd divide it into smaller sections, thought. The recipe makes a BOG batch of dough.

Rolling it in a ball is kind of a bad idea I think unless you have arms like Popeye. icon_biggrin.gif

I like your question about the paddle. I had a bad batch of Royal Icing because I had too much air in it, beating it slow with a stand-up mixer with beaters. I don't have a paddle and have the same question...What does one do?? icon_confused.gifdo you mix by hand...for 10 minutes? icon_eek.gif

Well I made the icing and the cookies... My cookies tore apart when I tried to take them off the counter onto the pan.. I think I either rolled them to thin or I didn't let them chill long enough.
For the icing: I added like a bunch more water then what the recipe said and used my reg. mixer on like high...I had to add a bunch of water because I just had a bunch of litle balls after beating it for 10 minutes..They turned out excellent and they are very good...I am very impressed.

I roll mine between parchment paper, that way I can either, take the extra dough away and set the parchment directly to my pan OR if I'm going to transfer the cookies to another sheet of parchment, at least I can Lift the parchment I rolled them on up off the counter to move my cookies. It really helps.

I am making the no fail sugar cookies right now. From what I read no ball is best. Is that correct?

Tracy702, I always just use all-purpose flour (usually unbleached, just because that's what I prefer) and they turn out great.

Moviechick, not sure what you mean by "no ball", but if you mean roll the dough out before refrigerating or refrigerate in a ball and then roll out, it's MUCH easier to roll it out between parchment as soon as it's made, then refrigerate. When you get it out of the fridge, then it's ready to cut and bake. It's extremely hard to roll it out when it's chilled in a big lump!
