Using unsalted butter in shortbread

hound31, Dec 3, 9:57pm
I have unsalted butter left over and want to make some shortbread. Recipe uses 225g of butter. Can I use it and do I need to add more salt than the 1/4 tsp in the original recipe! TIA

Hound31, you can certainly use it and as there is already 1/4 t of salt in your recipe I don't think you will need to add any more

It will be fine - actually it will taste better - also unsalted is much better in fudge cake.
