really liked these cookies, I love the cardamon flavor. i used the European butter, very rich. I will try more of my recipes with the European butter to see the difference.
Can you use regular butter instead of the European butter? Would the measurements be the same?
Hi Jean. Thanks for the question! This recipe was developed to highlight the tender texture you get from using our new European Style butter. However, you can always use our butter interchangeably in recipes. Let us know how the cookies turned out for you!
