I think there is something missing in this recipe. The 'dough' did not form at all. It was more or less just crumbs. I followed everytyhing perfectly, and even after I let it chill for an hour, as soon as I unwrapped it, it crumbled. I even tried to roll it, smash it, anything to get it to stick together, nothing worked.
