Cracked Sugar Cookies

I wanted to make some cookies for Dino's co-workers, but I didn't want to go to the grocery store. I figured a new sugar cookie recipe would be nice. This one was really difficult to work with - the dough crumbled and fell apart like crazy. I don't think I got anywhere near 4 dozen, either. They tasted good, but were definitely too frustrating for me to ever want to make them again.
