When making dough for sugar cut - out holiday cookies, the dough became dry and crumbly, even after refrigeration.

This tried and true recipe has been used for decades without such a glitch. How can a carefully followed recipe, used successfully countless times, fail so dramatically ?

What a bummer! Did you do anything differently in terms of the way you measured your flour or other ingredients? Maybe you used a different butter than you normally use? Are you somewhere where the air is particularly dry?

No Merrill, nothing different. That's why this has us so puzzled.
