I made this recipe to use for a baby shower cookie assortment and the cookies were perfect! Great texture, easy to cut out and did not spread out while baking. I added a touch of almond flavor to the batter. This will be my go-to recipe from now on.
Is it unsalted or salted butter for this recipe and for the sugar cookie recipe?
Hi Helen, you can use either salted or unsalted in this recipe. Happy baking!
