Make Ahead Dough: First I make my cookie dough on a Friday night then placed in the refrigerator. It is so much easier working with chilled dough than room temperature. Leave it chill for a day or two before making the cookies.
Quick Chill: If you don't have that much time, then place in the freezer to chill it quicker. Check after 15-minutes.
Divide Dough: Another tip is to divide the dough into a few smaller container and flatten the dough so it has less surface to chill. Place in refrigerator or freezer.
