Place the dough in the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours, preferably overnight.
Remove the plastic wrap, and get your cookie cutters ready.
Fill a small bowl or plate with 1/8 cup water. Dip your cookie cutter in the water, and then cut out your gingerbread man shape.
Peel away the edges with your fingers, or a toothpick for smaller areas. If the dough is not coming up easily, place it back in the freezer for 5 minutes and try again.
When finished, slide your baking sheet under the parchment paper and place it in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Remove your baking sheet from the freezer.
Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, until firm but soft.
Tip: To maximize your cookie cutting on the dough, it's a good idea to cut out the shapes as close together as you can. When you're finished, cut the parchment paper out around each cookie shape and arrange on your baking sheet. This will keep them from growing together while they bake.
