Hi there, I'm making cookies for my brother-in-law's 40th birthday. Party is tomorrow night, 3 hours away, and my sister begged me to do this. I'm a cake girl - not a cookie girl. I tried a recipe for sugar cookies, they came out great! So tonight I made the recipe again. Against better judgment I did NOT add a smidge more flour even though I thought the dough looked too wet. The dough's been refrigerated for 4 hours and still wet/sticky. Tried baking a batch, they spread out all over the place. The first time I did this they were perfect...all perfectly uniformly sized!
So my question is this: may I add a little more flour and either knead it in or mix it in using my stand mixer? Can you do that to dough that's already been refrigerated? I don't have the time to start this process all over again so any help someone can give me ASAP would be VERY much appreciated! thank you!!
kneed in some flour by hand. it will be fine.
I've got a test cookie in the oven - thanks for replying, Eryn! It looks so good so far!
