    I like how this dough turns out. I refrigerate the 1 hour and it handles nicely. Always get raves for their flavor.

    Though these held their shape beautifully, I found them a little bland.

    I made these on Saturday and they turned out great! After chilling the dough for an hour, I rolled it out and let it soften a bit. I cut out the shapes and put them on the cookie sheet and tossed the cookie sheet in the fridge for twenty minutes, pre-heating the oven in the meantime. I was worried about having to keep the dough chilled at all times, but it didn't seem to make a huge difference. They are still nice and soft two days later and my colleagues are loving them!

    Tylersmom...I too am getting tired of the directions to preheat the oven when there are directions to chill or freeeze the dough for 30 to 60 minutes while the oven is on and wasting energy. Sure wish the staff would notice the comments that appear often.....Mykele

    What kind of goof ball would think they really meant for you to preheat the oven before chilling the dough. Come on.

    It has been my experience that it is better to actually bake the cookies and freeze the cookies than to freeze the dough. Some cut-out cookies actually taste better after thawing from the freezing process! Several years ago I made 'from scratch' cakes for a wedding - - - one cake on each table! I know how much work it can be. I froze the cakes and frosted later. Good luck to you!

    is it possible to freeze the dough a few days in advance and then take out and roll out cut out etc? I am having a fall wedding next weekend and am using these as favors but need a lot of them... freezing the dough would make my life alot easier!

    I made these today, and they are very good. I will freeze the dough next time, it is very soft.
