Fantastic!! I've always had trouble with rolled cookies, but these were so easy!! I only refrigerated for twenty minutes or so, and they were so easy to roll and cut out! The dough was moist and very easy to handle. This'll be my staple rolled-cookie recipe from now on. THANKS!!

This dough is absolutely unrollable. I put it in the fridge to chill, after more than an hour it was still the consistency of chocolate chip cookies. I tried putting it in the freezer for an extended length of time and it was still impossible. I floured the counter and put wax paper over the dough, rolled it out, but the dough was so wet I couldn't get the cut cookies of the counter. Sorry but is there some hidden code for more flour that I'm missing?

I don't know what went wrong. The dough was so sticky I had to add a lot more flour to be able to roll it out. The cookies were dense and dry. Had to throw them away!

I loved this cookie! It is like the sugar cookies that you get at the grocery store bakeries. This will be my only sugar cookie recipe from now on!

As written, the dough was way to sticky to roll into anything and I had to add more flour. The dough has to be VERY cold before even thinking of rolling out. Once baked cookies are cake-like and puff up a LOT.
