    I did a trial run at home and the dough is really sticky. Putting it in the fridge for an hour seemed to help out a little bit. Do you have any tips?

      Marissa, I made these several times as well and you are right the dough is really sticky. I also put the dough in the refrigerator for approximately an hour. I didn’t find that it helped too much so what I ended up doing was using a cookie scoop (greased) for some of the cookies and for others I sprayed my hands with cooking spray and rolled the dough into balls. Either way, I didn’t want to add more flour to the recipe because as it is they don’t spread too much.
