I just made these for "V"-day today, and they are like eating play-dough! Very bland even after I frosted them. Were there missing ingredients parhaps?

Very easy, but mine came out very hard. I think the way the recipe is wrote, it causes you to overwork the dough.

Well, they were good but they need some fosting or something go good with milk

This was easy to make, extremely hard to stir, and tasted like play dough. I think there must be a missing ingredient or two...

I think the recipe needs more sugar to balance the amount of flour. Maybe a cup to a cup and a half more.
