      In order to make the recipe thick enough to roll it out and use cookie cutters, I increased the all-purpose flour to 3 cups. Also, I live in a high altitude area (above 4,000 feet) and increased the baking temperature to 335 baking the cookies for 20 to 25 minutes. I also highly recommend a stand mixer or get the flour started with the hand mixer and finish mixing with your hands. The added flour makes it difficult to mix with a hand mixer. I took the cookies to work and everyone loved them and a few asked for the recipe.
