I'm not sure what I did wrong, since there are so many great reviews, but these cookies were awful to me!! We made them for my daughter's halloween party, and were going to make pumpkins and ghosts, but the dough was so hard to work with, and by the time it softened enough to roll out, it was too sticky. I tried to only work with a small amount at a time, but it still got too soft too quickly. So, I glopped them on in lumps onto the cookie sheet, squished them a little, and decorated them with colored sugar instead. Once they cooled, I figured they would taste pretty good, but no. They taste like flour and baking soda with colored sugar on top. I followed the recipe and instructions exactly, giving them about 3 hours in the fridge before trying to work with them. The only thing I did was halve the recipe, but I checked and double checked the measurements, and I measured everything right.
