I tried o make this recipe. The dough never got firm and when I tried to bake it, the cookies all melted so that you only had one big cookie sheet covered with dough. I had to try a different recipe. I would never use this recipe again!

This recipe turned out to be a sticky mess. In the morning, the dough was as soft as it was the night before. I followed it to a tee, and still it was a mess. Not sure I will try it again.

Wonderful flavor but when I was making this recipe, the dough was way too soft to shape into a roll. I had to add a whole cup of flour before it was firm enought to shape.
