As Sam, I also found these sticky. The mace added to these cookies are great, I don't know if I ever had that spice in a sugar cookie before. The sour cream does keep these cookies moist. Might need to play around with the flour amounts next time maybe 4 cups would help with the sticky dough. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders 2006

I made this recipe but it was very, very sticky and never did set - even after leaving it the refrigerator overnight. We are novice bakers and it was a group effort so I am not sure exactly what went wrong. Bummer...
