Fantastic!! I've always had trouble with rolled cookies but these were so easy!! I only refrigerated for twenty minutes or so and they were so easy to roll and cut out! The dough was moist and very easy to handle. This'll be my staple rolled-cookie recipe from now on. THANKS!! Read More

This dough is absolutely unrollable. I put it in the fridge to chill after more than an hour it was still the consistency of chocolate chip cookies. I tried putting it in the freezer for an extended length of time and it was still impossible. I floured the counter and put wax paper over the dough rolled it out but the dough was so wet I couldn't get the cut cookies of the counter. Sorry but is there some hidden code for more flour that I'm missing? Read More

I don't know what went wrong. The dough was so sticky I had to add a lot more flour to be able to roll it out. The cookies were dense and dry. Had to throw them away! Read More

This is a light and tender cookie with the hint of lemon. I had no trouble rolling out the dough as some reviewers had mentioned. I simply floured the board well and kept the dough chilled. Read More
