I had to add one more egg because it was so dry. After 1 hour in the fridge the dough was really hard to work with. It was crumbling like crazy. I didn't even bother with the cookie cutters. Even though they were hard to work with the end result was very good. I love them for breakfast with my coffee. I will make these again but I may add something else to make it a bit more moist. Maybe and egg white. Great low fat cookie.
