This dough is missing something, or has too much of something. I'm thinking both. I'm thinking the cream was not needed. I'm thinking it needed at LEAST another cup of flour. It chilled in my fridge for 3 days before I finally got around to being able to shape them. I had hoped this would be a fun baking project for me and my kids. But this dough was way too frustrating to work with for kids. It's very flimsy and sticky. Even with coating our hands, surface, and lightly dusting the dough with flour, it stuck to everything. When we would finally get a little bit rolled into a couple tubes, it would fall apart when trying to twist it. I gave up after the second candy cane. So then we tried rolling both colors out with a rolling pin thinking we would put one on top of the other, and then roll together and cut into slices so they would look like peppermint hard candies, but the dough stuck to the wax paper we were rolling it on. We tried using a butter knife to separate it and it would stick to the knife. We finally just rolled the dough into little solid color balls, using lots of flour to minimize sticking (too much flour), and baked them that way. The results were really flat, flaky, crumbly cookies. They taste okay, though they seem a bit too rich to me. But the consistency is all wrong. Next time I'll just use my old tried and true sugar cookie recipe and flavor it. If I could give this zero stars I would.
