I wanted to make cut out cookies with my kids like in the picture, so I convinced myself that the people who put the bad reviews must have done something wrong since it has gotten several good reviews also....well I tried to make these last night and the batter was SO super sticky like other reviewers wrote, so I put it in the fridge until this morning and it was still a sticky mess. There was no way I could roll the dough in my hand to make a ball or with the roller to make the cut outs, so I just got a spoon and dropped small amounts onto a cookie sheet. Some that were too big were still raw in the middle at 8 min. cooking time, so I mostly had to cook them 12 minutes. I made another batch of dough this morning so I could give it a second chance and still way too sticky. I'm not an experienced baker so I didn't know a trick to fix that....I did try to add water and that would help for a few seconds, but then back to sticking. Like another reviewer wrote, these are ok if you AREN'T going to make cut outs. Those who did really need to share their secret!!! Overall these are easy to make and the taste is Ok, but I'll keep looking for another recipe that I can make cut outs with. The picture really shouldn't show cut outs for this recipe, because if you follow it as it's written, the dough is way too sticky for cut outs.
