    After a couple of tries with everything sticking, like others I refrigerated the dough, then used parchment paper on both sides to roll so it didn't stick. I rolled the pinwheel logs and put the dough in the refrigerator again to make the cutting of the pinwheels easier. I have several grandchildren that enjoy these so I will be making them again.

    I didn't have the same trouble as the others, while it was 'tackier' than other sugar cookie doughs, it wasn't unmanageable. I also refrigerated them after I rolled them up and put them back after I cut just enough for one cookie sheet. I like these because they taste rich and not over-sweet. Got great reviews from friends and family on these.

    I gave the recipe two stars becuase of the flavor but that is it. The dough was to sticky it was hard to roll and when they baked it was like the butter and cheese oozed out of the cookie and almost burned. I will not make this again. They were not pretty like the picture.
