Hi Marybeth, when a dough doesn't come together and stays crumbly, it could mean that you have measured slightly too much flour. Next time, try lightly scooping flour into the measuring cup and leveling with a knife. Hope this helps - happy baking!

What am I doing wrong? i have tried this twice and I can't get any kind of dough to form? It is all the dry stuff with bits of butter? Help?
