The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
These are great! I was looking for a recipe that made dough good enough for my 2 yr old to work with and handle. He did great with it and it's good with cookie cutters. I made it exactly like the recipe, no adjustments. The only thing different was I left it wrapped in the fridge for 5 days before I was able to get time to make them. I didn't find it sticky, but you do need to use flour on the counter and rolling pin, other wise it will stick. Obviously the warmer it gets from the fridge the more tacky it will be. Overall, a definite keeper. Do not overcook, 5 min is all they needed. Not overly sweet, but if you want sweet, add 1 more cup of sugar like other suggestions, not sure that I would do that next time.

Fresh Semolina and Egg Pasta
Really good, tasted awesome! I did do as others said and added an extra pinch of salt. It was also to dry for my KA roller (Wouldn't go through), so I had to add more oil and then some water to get it to go through. I read that many things can effect the way a dough recipe turns out, like the humidity, sea level, and size of eggs, my 'large' eggs didn't look very large to me, so that may have been my initial problem. This was my first time, and after reading more on pasta dough, I learned that when 'resting' the dough, it relaxes the glutens/proteins making it more pliable. Also, stick your finger in the dough ball after kneading it, and it should fill back in, and look almost as if you never stuck your finger in it. That is how you know you're done kneading. I wouldn't recommend letting the KA do most of the kneading, hand is best to build the gluten.

Alfredo Sauce
I used garlic butter and no cloves, It was garlicky with just the butter. I also used parmesan-reggiano. I did as one user suggested and made sure to add the milk and cheese slowly, whisking the entire time. It didn't separate on me. Definately a keeper.
