      This recipe was impossible to put together. It says to roll out the dough, but it is absolutely impossible to do that because the dough is so sticky. When I read "roll out", I assume the job is one with a rolling pin, but don't even think of trying to do it that way. I finally had to pinch off pieces of dough, flatten them with my hand, and then use the cookie cutter to get the right shape. My kitchen looked like a war zone when I was finished. Nonetheless, the cookies tasted good, and if I were to tackle this recipe again, and lest i have worked out a better procedure. I would love to hear from others who have tackled this recipe to see what they think.
