Pick one color at a time and on a lightly floured surface, Then roll dough until just over 1/8” thick.
Cut them 2-inch rounds with round cutter. On each round just in from the side, mark with smaller round cutter, approximately 1.5 inches diameter, pressing slightly. Run a metal spatula under the dough, to make sure it isn’t sticking to the table, spatter with flour underneath as necessary.
