I was very careful to follow the recipe closely, but the cookies didn't turn out very well. Although the cookies really are soft (not chewy, just soft), the taste is just okay. It's a little bland. The dough was very difficult to work with. When it's chilled, it's very hard and very crumbly so it didn't roll out smoothly. Once it softened up a little, it became very sticky even after I floured the surface, the rolling pin, and the cookie cutters. I really like the idea of a soft sugar cookie, but it's just too messy to work with the dough, especially when I am hoping to do shaped cutouts. I would recommend people who are trying this recipe for the first time to just make little balls of the dough, maybe roll it in some sugar, and flatten it with the bottom of a glass. If you find the dough workable for you, then you can try to do cut-outs the next time.
