Wow, did I miss something or is this a joke? I followed this recipe exactly and ended up with a crumbly floury dough that did nothing when I tried to pat it into any kind of shape. I managed to get it into somewhat squarish shapes, more through pressing because cutting wasn't working... I baked them and ended up with hot crumbly floury lumps that I ended up throwing out along with the rest of the "dough."
