"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Pour in the flour a little at a time and work with it until a dough forms. After you get the dough the way you want it, you should have about a cup of flour left over from your 5 lb.bag. Estend the dough with a rolling pin and cut out with your favorite cookie cutter. Bake until golden. Sprinkle the sugar coating on cookies.
