I got this recipe from Canadian Living Magazine and thought I'd better put it here so I can find it again.

I prepared this recipe exactly as described, but found the dough was very, very dry. I tried baking a few of the cookies with the dry dough, but as predicted, it made for very crumbly and dry cookies. For the second batch, I mixed in about 1/3 cup of water, and that seemed to help produce a more moist cookie.
