It was too soft for what the amount of ingredients called for and even though I left it in the fridge overnight, it was almost just right but when using cookie cutters, the dough stuck to everything, no matter how much flour I used. This is definitely not for cookie cutters. Even after moulding it in circles, the kids ate only one and didn't like it.

My cookies came out great. I haven't made cookies in over a decade and this is a simple basic cookie recipe. I added a pinch of salt and a couple of drops of almond extract to my eggs and my recipe was scaled down to 12 servings instead of 48. The dough is very soft so I molded mine by hand and put pineapple jam in the center. They were very yummy shortbread cookies with jam.
