Depends on the dough. If it is soft refrigerate until it firms up. It will retain its shape better when baked. Some rolled cookie doughs are very soft and sticky and should be refrigerated over night. There are also many doughs that are firmer and can be mixed and baked right away. Refrigerating will not harm any of the doughs.

I prefer to bake mine right away without chilling.

On a professionally written recipe, it will usually say what is recommended for best results. It doesn't hurt to refrigerate, but frequently, you would still let it warm back to room temp for easier rolling of the dough.

I always chill my dough. It seems to work better for me.
