Tried this recipe last night, and had no problems. I think, as the previous reviewer suggested, that the key to working with the dough is to chill it well. I rolled the dough into a disc (to speed chilling time) between two sheets of plastic wrap & chilled it in the fridge for an hour. Plastic wrap is a great tool for sticky type doughs. These cookies are soft and yummy. I added some cinnamon, nutmeg & a pinch of ginger to make them more spicy. Pretty on a cookies tray.
I use this recipe often. It is very attractive on a cookie tray. However the trick to this cookie is to chill the dough! Always keep the dough in the refrigerator when your not working with it.
The dough was difficult to work with. Too soft and sticky to work as a cut out cookie. I ended up using it as a drop cookie. The taste was OK but not enough to compensate for the difficulty working with it.

As autumn rolls around, I love making apple desserts. I’ve written a couple of times about my hunt for the best apple crisp recipe and how I’m always looking for ways to utilize the crop of apples in our yard. While I do have a couple of stand-by recipes, it’s always nice to try a new spin.
