Use Up Your Scraps
Cut the rolled-out dough into 1-1/2-by-3-inch rectangles.
Pinch the Dough
Use your fingers to pinch the center of each rectangle, forming a bow tie shape.
Dress Them Up
Sprinkle the bow ties with your cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Bow Tie Cookies
Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet until the cookies are golden around the edges, 15 minutes.
