This is a wonderful recipe, albeit labor-intensive! I would agree with a previous reviewer that perhaps some folks didn't follow the recipe to the letter. The dough does need a lot of refrigeration. I did the minimum 2 hours, but while making the cookies (with a LOT of flour to prevent sticking), I only pulled a handful of dough out of the bowl at a time. While rolling/forming cookies, I left the remainder of the dough in the fridge. I would disagree with the prep time, as it does require time to roll out dough, form cookies, etc, but it is WELL worth it! I baked them for 11 minutes and they were just perfect, especially with the frosting. I got rave reviews, even from friends who don't normally like sweets! One last point: this recipe makes a lot of dough. I estimated I could've gotten 8 dozen cookies from it. I used about half, made 4 dozen heart cookies, and froze the rest. It's a great recipe that I will use again and again. Thanks so much!
