Is it possible to use unsalted butter. Would that change nutrients? Dietitian comment: Yes you can make that change. Sodium is reduced to 3 mg and cholesterol is increased to 20 mg (for 3 cookies). Other nutrients remain about the same.

Dough was a bit difficult to roll out. Works better with powdered sugar.

What is meant by (Invalid)s? Dietitian comment: It is automatically inserted into a review if the user types certain symbols, such as quotation marks, in the review. I try to remove them before the review goes live but see I missed on on this recipe. Please ignore.
