Slice the cookie dough roll into 16 pieces, and lay them on your cookie sheet...use the ends to fill in the gaps. [I used a round pizza sheet, but a regular cookie sheet should work as well.]
Press down on the slices with your hands to try to shape a big cookie. You can also use a rolling pin.
When you get the slices into a circle, you can correct the shape by putting a plate on top and cutting off the excess.
Still not perfect, but don't sweat it!
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until your cookie is golden brown. [Mine got a little TOO brown!]
Set it aside until cool. If you want, you can try to remove it from the cookie sheet, but it's not easy…I left mine on the pizza pan.
You can decorate it any way you want - you can cover the whole thing with icing and sprinkles, or you can pipe designs on it, like I did with a star tip (see my piping tips and tricks post for help).
So easy, so fun, and a great way to celebrate a birthday or other special occasion,
