Hi, whenever I make MMF (just made some yesterday) I always let it rest covered in plastic wrap in a ziplock over night and it seems to work out just fine. Maybe you just need to let it sit longer before using it, have you tried rolling it again, maybe enough time has passed?

i havent touched it since yesterday, but it just seems too greasy, i think cause i re roled it soo many times, should i knead more powdered sugar till it dries up??

You can try kneading in a small amount of additional powdered sugar, or you can divide it into about four equal portions. Roll each of them out on a fine dusting of cornstarch then roll it back into a ball. After you have done this with however many portions you divided, knead them all back together into one big ball.... that should have dried it up for you into manageable again.

That is what I would do, seems to work! Good Luck!
