    You mention salt in the recipe but not on the ingredients. You might want to check that. Otherwise, thanks for posting! 🙂

    You have left out the amount of salt to use in this recipe. Trying this today, used 1/2 tsp salt hope that is right

      Hello Nancy…I just opened GATHERINGS cookbook & see that it says 1 teaspoon of salt. I will go in and change it on the blog as soon as my travel schedule eases up. Racing around the US like a nut all summer. THANK YOU for alerting me to the error & let me know how they turn out!
