Rolled Cookies are cookies made from a rolled-out cookie dough. The opposite is "drop cookies."

The cookie dough is prepared, then rolled out, usually on a floured surface. Cookies are then cut out of the dough in the desired shapes, placed on a cookie sheet, and baked. While there is nothing to say that the cookies can't simply be cut out with a knife in squares, a cookie cutter is almost always used instead to give visual appeal to the shape of the cookie.

Example: Sugar Cookies

Ingredients:  2 3⁄4 cups flour (all purpose is fine)1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking soda1 cup butter (softened in microwave)1 1⁄2 cups sugar1 egg (large)1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Texture: Crunchy, very tender
