What did I do wrong? Cookie dough never came together, too crumbly.. 1/2 rice flour, 1/2 regular flour no egg

Hi I'm hoping to get some advice I tried this recipe out for cookies:
http://www.itsallaboutrice.com/recipe...

instead of the brown rice flour I used 1/2 white rice flour, 1/2 regular a.p., other things changed were i reduced honey by 1 tbsp to 3 tablespoons, reduced the salt by 1/4, reduced vanilla to 3/4 tsp, used 2 tablespoons cornstarch instead of egg and left out the nuts..

i know eggs are what holds cookies together but i read an online substitution guide that said i could use 2 tablespoons cornstarch instead..
as the dough mixed it never really came together and was just crumbly cookie crumbs. i tried putting in freezer for 30 minutes no change..

would adding some water work? i'm not sure what else to do as i don't want to use xanthan gum and what's confusing is i've found lots of cookie recipes online that don't use eggs therefore i'm kind-of confused as to what happened.. i have the mixture sitting in the fridge in case i can salvage it..
thank you for your time and efforts to help, it is greatly appreciated!
