I read all of the reviews and tried to compile the best of the best since so many people complained of problems. I added 1/4 more flour and 1 egg, per others' recommendations. Then I chilled the dough for an hour. I used my Pampered Chef scoop and rolled them into balls, flattening slightly so they represented saucers slightly larger than a quarter. I used the chapstick for the preserves as recommended - worked perfectly! I tried my first batch lowering the oven temp, but that didn't seem to work, so I baked them at 350 as directed. Mine took about 19 minutes each to bake. Maybe mine were larger? My batch yielded 32 cookies. I haven't tried the icing yet - they are delicious as is. But I might try it and see which I like better.
Every year for Christmas I try a new cookie. Some never make it to the dessert table and of those that do, most don't return the following year. But these are a keeper! They will be part of my cookie repetoire going forward!
Thanks for a great recipe!
