The recipe is a family favorite to make each year for Christmas because the cookies aren't too doughy, but are easy to handle for big and little fingers to decorate. I find that it's easier to handle the longer I refrigerate it.

These turned out a bit dry for me. I like mine very moist and chewy. The dough seemed very sticky to roll out, I had to use lots of flour.
