Corrected version of recipe because the recipe that is said makes a dough that is too soft to be pate sucree I had to use more flour to get it to the consistency you want the sucree to be stiff but not overtly stiff it should stick a little when it’s rolled to 1/2 inch. Use 1 cup more of AP flour, more if needed (would not use more than a tbsp, it must remain sticky when rolled, if doesn’t you have too much flour you can adjust by adding a tbsp more of softened butter. Do not create the well until All the bitter is mixed like little pebble granules use food processor if you have it, and then create the well with room temp eggs in center.
