These cookies were a complete mess. No wonder you dropped them on the cookie sheet. I let them chill in the frig for an hour as noted, when I tried to roll them they were sticky, they stuck to the rolling pin and cutting board even though I dusted them with flour. After 2 days in the freezer, I thought they would be fine. The same thing, sticky, sticky, I dusted the flower board again then turned the dough over, by this time after the cookies baked, they were hard. I agree with SusanW1. I like a softer tea cake. The flavor left to be desired, sort of bland. Will find another receipe, won't make these again.
Really good flavor! Better if recipe is followed for thickness of cookies so they will be chewy.
My family loves these cookies. I make them all year long. I don't roll them I just drop them on the cookie sheet and bake, plain and simple. They come out great every time! For the holidays I might add a hint of nutmeg for the season.
These cookies were great! Very easy to make and quick to bake. The dough was a little hard to work with so make sure its nice and cold! Tastes like a chocolate chip cookie sans chocolate chips. Will def. make these again!
