Need salt butter for a baking recipe but bought unsalted out of habit. How much salt should I add?

How much butter does it call for? In the U.S., there is about 1.25 tsp of butter in one pound. Other countries cut that in half or more.
I need 2 sticks so I'm guessing 1/2 tsp salt should do. Thanks
Usually there is a teaspoon of salt to every 100gm of butter.
Yikes. That would be over 4 tsp in a lb if I'm doing the math right. 1lb butter=453 grams. It's only 1.25 tsp per pound in the US and our salted butter is 4% sodium compared to 2% or less in the UK. Not sure where you live, but that would be some salty butter.
1/2 teaspoon salt worked. Cookies taste as they should. Thanks. Always can count on Food 52'ers to come to my rescue.
