    this recipe doesn't make dough because it doesn't contain any liquids to make it go into a dough. what you need to add is an egg and half a teaspoon of vanilla extract to make it a dough or at least so you can make it like a dough. also it doesn't make a dozen the maximum you will get if you use adequate sizes is 7 or 8.  -  03 Aug 2013


    These were quite easy and delicious to have with tea in the afternoon but I had to add a bit of almond milk to make the dough as it was not pasty enough to form... just crumbly without any liquid.  -  21 Oct 2013
