*Editor's Note: It appears that the amount of butter (1 1/4 cups) was misreported when this was originally published. Similar recipes call for 1/4 cup of butter so we have updated the amount to reflect that.

I think there might be an error in the ingredients and it should only say 1/4 + more for dotting the top. Unfortunately, this member hasn't been on the site for a few years so I don't think we are going to get a response.


1 1/4 cups of butter would be very greasy (2 1/2 cubes) so I would try it with just 1/4 and see how it turns out. That sounds like the right amount. If you try them, please let us know how they turn out.
