After letting the dough sit for 30 minutes, I split it in half and rotated each section, rolling it out, cutting out cookies, putting the scraps back in a ball, and putting it back in the fridge for a while. It really helped them not be too sticky. I also used Carissa's advice and rolled it out between two sheets of wax paper- great suggestion!(My big helper- Brayden- this was actually his first time really helping me in the kitchen- it lasted about 1 minute before he decided that eating the dough was more fun!)
I used mini cookie cutters for half the dough and dipped the cookies in chocolate- that's what I brought to our S2S Christmas party- not many were eaten, but that is probably b/c there were about 15 super yummy desserts provided!The other half I made as Ina's recipe directed, but I used Blackberry preserves I already had- they were pretty good too!
