How many cookies does it make?

Hi. I made these cookies Saturday and they were YUMMY! Rolling them was an issue though. The mix stuck to my hands terribly. I wondered if anyone else had that problem and what you did to solve it. I'd make them over and over, but for that one issue. I refrigerated for 2 hours, but that didn't seem to help the sticky issue. They were awful crumbly when done too. Their taste was great though. Any suggestions for me? Thanks for a great recipe.

Miss Linda & Mary,
Thanks for trying the cookies im glad that you loved them.
I have no idea how many cookies it makes or what to say about
the sticking and crumbling situation,the lady did not tell her
how to solve the problems I would just experiment with the recipe and go from there.. I am sorry for the trouble...

Oh you could try to put more flour on the dough and the rolling pin and then try slicing them , see if that works for ya plz let me know how it works out for ya...

Might be a good idea to chill the dough before rolling them. Hope to try this recipe soon.
