Yes, this recipe works, but please do NOT put in 1 1/2 tablespoons of salt, that is definitely a typo, I used 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt and it turned out good enough, even though it probably would have been much better with 1 teaspoon if using closer to 2 3/4 cups of flour.
That must be a typo, with less than 3 cups of flour it should only be 1.5 teaspoons of salt!!
My girlfriend and I just tried this dough. Ack! It is soooo salty! And it's not like we are health nuts or something, we eat salty foods all the time. We are thinking of trying it again, however we will cut out much of the salt.
