I failed. Big time.
Within a span of two years, I’ve only had a few ‘Dorie Fails’… in fact, I can count the number on one hand. Needless to say, I was pretty disappointed in the way these turned out. After following the directions to a T, I ended up having to add 2-3 tablespoons of milk for the dough to hold together (and even that was not enough!). I did take the advice on the P&Q, though, and added a bit of salt. The cookies were way beyond the meaning of “crumbly”, but I believe the salt helped the taste (the Nutella didn’t hurt either)!!
Maybe I’ll call them ‘Rustic Thumbprints’?
