As a commercial Baker this recipe is terrible flour ratio out and to much fiddling about to get results,my kids tried it came home having to try and fix it

I had the same problem to wet. Instead of rolling out roll small balls and flatten on lightly floured board then cut with biscuit cutter

I'm not normally one to write reviews - but beware of this recipe. It is an absolute failure. I added an extra 100gm flour and it was still impossible to roll out. Even chilling the 'almost dough' didn't help. I've spent an exorbitant amount of time fiddling with it as I didn't want to waste the ingredients. Should have just thrown it away in hindsight. I'd stay well away from this one sorry.

Found the mixture quite wet so had to add more flour
