I followed this recipe to the letter and got absolutely perfect cookies. The recipe, if you make it exactly as stated, makes a dough that is the perfect consistency for rolling out. It was neither too wet or too dry -- it was pliable (like Play-Doh) but not at all sticky. I rolled the dough out with a flour-dusted rolling pin, dusted to surface with sugar and got the kids in to help me cut out the Christmas shapes. The finished cookie is delicious; a little on the "cake-y" side even when rolled out to 1/8-inch but with a lovely crisp bottom. Be sure to watch them carefully and don't overcook. I cooked each batch for about 6 minutes (7 minutes was a tiny bit too long for medium-sized cookie shapes). We decorated them with coloured icing and the taste was perfect - the dough itself is not too sweet, so the icing-sugar glaze was a good complement. Overall, an excellent recipe. I'm saving it on my computer, printing it out for my cookbook, and emailing it to myself so I will never lose it!
