what happens if i don't refrigerate the dough for 2 hours?

Hi Ani.

It is much easier to work with the dough if you refrigerate it for 2 hours.

Thank you for sharing.I made cookies but they spread much more than yours and you could feel quite greasy. What was wrong? Would you please help me to try again. My measurements was right and my oven is trustable.
