I didn't soften the margarine, and it worked perfectly fine. I guess the ratio of margarine to flour makes up for that . ..sort of. When I tried as directed, I got very little crust--it was more like floured margarine. I added another 1/2 to 3/4 cup flour to make it workable. Then, it came together easily. Although I probably could have refrigerated it, I chose to just roll it out . . .which it was a tad difficult to work with, but not impossible. With added flour, this seemed to work out okay but I'm still puzzled by the recipe. It is a tad salty--if you use salted margarine, you probably don't need the salt at all. This worked for what I wanted it for, and I figured this recipe deserved another chance, but I had to make enough changes that I think it wouldn't really work as written. Thanks for the recipe!
