these ARE super soft cookies, which i love. i did have to add about 1/2 cup extra flour while mixing the dough and used plenty more while rolling and cutting the soft dough, but still ended up with the soft cookies i was looking for. **added about 2tsp of vanilla to the dough.
These were delectable - soft and chewy, with a rich vanilla flavor. I pressed a dark chocolate Hershey Kiss into each one after it came out of the oven, and thought the contrast was excellent. These are great cookies for sharing and gift giving.
I wasn't prepared for the dough to be so sticky. I put it in a large ziploc bag & then in the fridge. After the hour was up I cut the tip off the bag & used it like a pastry bag. It worked very well!
