Probably you forgot to mention the baking powder in the recipe (it's included in the ingredients). I used granulated sugar and probably that's why this recipe didn't work for me. I tried to bake it more than 10 minutes, but the cookies didn't bind at all. After 12-13 minutes, there was no binding, probably because of the kind of sugar I used and it was just melting and oozing around.
