Recipe Notes

  • If the dough is not moldable in your hands and can’t be rolled into a ball, continue to add sugar until it is firm.
  • Make sure that your dough can be rolled at this point, if it’s too sticky or falling apart, you may need to add more sugar, re-shape it into a ball, and start over.
