Salting Unsalted Butter...

IslandGirl | Dec 11, 2005 08:07 PM

I am going to make chocolate chunk shortbread cookies tomorrow and when I first started making them years ago I followed the explicit instruction which said that I must use salted butter and I would just use my current favourite brand. I would like to know if I can use my favourite unsalted butter and add ??? amount of salt and what kind of salt I should be using. Any suggestions/opinions about proportions and type of salt to use would be appreciated. I'm also wondering about ensuring the salt is dissolved...
