I have rolled my cookie dough (eggless recipe) into a tube and put into the fridge overnight (in clingfilm). When I come to cut it the next day, it crumbles half way through the cut. I have tried a thin knife, a serrated knife, even tried the floss method. I just end up with half the cookie intact and the other half in crumbs. What am I doing wrong to such a simple process?
When you say you have tree the dental floss method, how did you hold the floss? I have had really good results by putting the floss under the roll of the dough and crossing the tails over the top of the roll and pulling the tails until the dough disc is cut off the roll. That way there is no downward pressure to crumble the sides of the roll.
