At first, I just wanted to try this recipe by following it to the letter to see the results. The other two reviewers are right. I ended up with the same results. Maybe butter should be 1/2 cup instead of 1/4 cup and the flour should be all-purpose, whole wheat or a mixture of the two. But, not white whole wheat.

Did you use the white whole wheat flour or regular ww? I'd think it would make a huge difference if you didn't use the white whole wheat flour or a blend of white and whole wheat.

I attempted this recipe today, and the dough was all crumbly.Is there a missing liquid aspect to this recipe? I have never had a mixture that looked like this before. I used whole wheat flour.Thanks for your help!
