    These are really good. With a couple of changes, they will be outstanding. I was/am surprised at the amount of sugar the recipe calls for. I don't know if it is a mistake or if these are meant to be more savory, but I found them undersweet and over-salty (I only had regular butter, not unsalted - perhaps that was the problem.) Next time - increase sugar in the dough from 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon. Decrease the salt from 1/2 teaspoon to 1/4 teaspoon. I'd also be very tempted to add about 1/2 teaspoon of cardamom. Helpful hint: If you have a food processor, mix the dry ingredients with 1 pulse, then add the butter in 1/4 tablespoon cubes, then pulse 3-4 times and you will have the butter perfectly incorporated. The texture on these is really outstanding. Will definitely make these often and dry different combinations of flavors.
