I did not break up the lint so it did not absorb the water as quickly. Make sure you break up your lint.

Add flour and keep cooking. Don’t worry if it sticks to the bottom of the pan I soaked my pan in water with a little bit of soap for 5 minutes and everything lifted up off the bottom it was super easy to clean.

If your dough is a bit sticky you can either add more flour or wait a day and it will dry out a bit and become easy to play with.
