Not as easy as I expected, Member arismom2882

I could never get it to become consistent enough to ""roll"" and make into a ball. It was too sticky and just didn't do right. This was, however, my first time making homemade cookies. My daughter and I tried making them in between decorating for Christmas. I might try it again. I was a little disappointed.
