Good! I didn't pre-read the recipe and only had time to let the dough sit two hours. Added additional flour before rolling out, about 1/2 cup. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Thank you Bliss for posting this recipe. I made these last night and they were amazing: even though I halfed the recipe and was a half cup short of potatoes. Can't wait to try these again. They were so flavourful, well worth the effort. I let the dough sit for 5 hours before baking.
