      Hi there Cathrine,
      We re-tested the recipe and our food editor has recommended that you use 200g of flour instead of 180g.

      Also, it’s important to note that when making biscuits / cookies, one should always chill the dough before working with it, as it does become quite sticky. If you’d like some more information, please send us your contact number and our food editor Hannah will give you a call. Thanks!
