Why is my Joy of Cooking rolled cookie dough crumbly?

twinmommy | Dec 19, 2010 04:05 PM

I followed the recipe to the tee (2 1/2 c flour, 2 eggs, stick butter, 1/2 c sugar, etc.) and got a bowl of crumbs that I had to press together and add some milk to in order to get it to hold together. Now it's sitting overnight in the fridge. I don't make rolled cookies often- are some doughs just crumbly like that? Or is it a sign that I didn't beat something long enough or in the right order (although I followed the recipes sort of rudimentary instructions).
I'm baking cookies tomorrow w/ my kids for their bday so any advice or a recommended recipe I can whip up tonight would be much appreciated!
