Add butter; using on/off turns, process until dough comes together.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
Cut each dough log into 1/3- to 1/2-inch-thick rounds; place on sheets.

Reverse sheets so bottom sheet is on top rack of oven and top sheet is on bottom rack.
Bake until cookies are golden, about 10-15 minutes longer.
