Have you tried chilling the dough first?

oh yes ..
its weird its kind of dry so i and liquid to it
But that really doesn't make a difference.
I guess the only way any one can understand is to make it,,
I 'm not good at exsplaining the problem..
but yes i have chilled it over night
i really don't want to have to find another recipe anyone will agree this one taste so yummy. But if its not going to roll out very well and take to much time then i might have too,,
so if anyone has a yummy recipe to pass on send it my way .. thanks.
