My dough was extremely dry and crumbly. Very hard to work with, I added some water. Don't know what I did wrong? Not sure what they'll taste like though....

The flavor of these was great. I cooked them thin to make them crisp but think I would make them thicker next time...I preferred the thicker (softer) cookies.
