I have the dough in the refrigerator but it seems to have gotten so hard. Will it soften when I take it out?
Yes, it will soften after you take it out of the refrigerator. Let it stand at room temp. 20-30 minutes.
I have made these cookies many times and they are always awesome! I frost them with a buttercreme frosting and decorate. There's an article on this webssite for those that are having problems with the cookies spreading too much.
