More About This Recipe

First, don’t skip chilling the dough. Chilling cookie dough, even if for just 30 minutes, will make it much easier to handle. This makes it a crucial step for when you’re stuffing cookies with candy, like this recipe, or when you’re making sugar cookie cut-outs for Christmas like in this recipe. Working with the chilled dough on a floured surface with some flour on your hands will also make the dough easier to handle.
