Would not make this again.
I made these cookies with unsalted butter and they need salt. So I would suggest using regular butter. Also, the glass stuck to the cookies when I tried to flatten them so I would suggest using a piece of wax paper between the dough and glass, then sprinkle the sugar on them. The recipe does not give a bake time but I baked them for around 10 min. I don't think I will make them again; I took them to my Sons of Norway Christmas party and nobody even tried one. 4 stars
