What Happens When Too Much Flour Is In Cookie Dough And How To Fix It
One of the most common mistakes when making cookie dough is accidentally adding too much flour, which can hamper the consistency. Luckily, there are a few easy ways to fix this.
One way to fix the consistency is to add some extra fat such as more butter or even an egg yolk. This will make the dough easy to work with again.
You can also add extra liquid, such as milk or water, which will help get the dough back to the correct consistency. Either option will work, but make sure to only pick one.
