After reading through the reviews, I decided to go ahead with these cookies for a cookie exchange at work. The reviews suggested the dough was too sticky, and the cookies were too sweet.
I used only all purpose flour. As another reviewer suggested, I added an extra 1/4th cup of flour. I reduced the sugar by 1/4th cup, and reduced the honey in the dough to just a little over 1/6th cup. I chilled the dough for more than an hour in the fridge - I had to let it sit on the counter for about 10 minutes before I rolled it out, but it rolled out easy. I used parchment paper and paper towel rolls to wrap the dough, and chose to freeze the logs overnight before cutting and baking.
Worked out beautifully. The dough wasn't sticky. The cookies aren't overly sweet. The only thing I would change is to add a bit more cardamom to the dough. 1/4th teaspoon is just a tad lower than what I would prefer.
The cookies tasted way better the next day, for some reason.
