Ok, so I learned a valuable lesson today.. when it says to stir in the flour, DO NOT use the lowest speed on your hand mixer and think it's the same thing. I made these cookies (with 3 cups sugar and 2 tsp vanilla as modifications) and made the above mistake. The dough was soooo sticky. I left in the fridge for over 24 hrs and still so unmanageable, but delicious, that I had to add ridiculous amounts of flour just to be able to roll out. Needless to say, they were not as tasty. I decided to scrap those and start again but only use the hand mixer to cream the butter and beat in the eggs. After that, I folded in the flour and WHAT A DIFFERENCE! The dough (with the same ingredients as before) was not sticky and light as a feather! I divided into 3 balls and wrapped in wax paper to let chill in the fridge. After 2 hours, the dough was quite firm.. nothing like the dough from before that I had chilling for a day and a half! Amazing what a difference something like that can make!
