I had a hard time with these. There wasn't enough wet ingredients to mix in with the dry. I ended up using about 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup of milk to get the ingredients to come together. After the dough had chilled, it worked fairly well. Right before I rolled it out, I added a handful of icing sugar. I was worried that the flour flavour would overpower the sweetness. My fiance liked the final result (without icing). His only complaint was that I didn't roll them out thin enough. I liked the thicker ones myself.
