I made this recipe on Sunday night for my son's class and the cookies came out good. The dough needed to be put in the fridge longer than an hour though to be handled, and even then I had to use a little at a time and keep the rest chilled while rolling out the cookies. It was a little tricky rolling them out, but for a first attempt, they came out good. I wanted to make them again today for my daughter's class, and I made everything the same except I used Country Crock Margarine instead of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" sticks. The dough never really set up enough to roll out candy canes, and it was kind of greasy. I think this was because of the change in margarine types. To compensate I added a little more flour and this made the cookies come out more like a scone flavor. Instead of making candy canes I rolled thin strips of red, green and plain dough together and twisted them by rolling each end in opposite directions and spinning my cutting board around. This made a long think candy cane which would be fun to cook as is, but I cut them into small rectangles to look almost like pillow candy. Overall they came out okay..I will definately use "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" again the next time though. It needs something else though too to sweeten the bland flavor of the dough.
