I made my 2nd batch of NFSC. The first spread too much & I read to sub 1/2 of butter for Crisco. So, I did & now they are too dry. I know it's suppose to be on the dry side, but when I went to take them off the sheet to put them on the cooling rack the tops broke off. They do taste a little dry as well. They do hold a shape after kneading it a few times, but it seems too crumbly. Is there anything I can do to salvage this batch? I hate to throw such a big batch out.
I would take part, and sprinkle on a few drops of water or milk.
