I’m glad you came along, Emma, thanks. I was going to make these too, and would have used room temp butter. 😀

Hi Amy, thanks for this question! The butter should be cold (just adjusted the recipe to include this detail).

Sometimes, as in pie crusts and such, the directions may say chilled butter, however in the absence of specific instructions to the contrary, butter should be at room temperature in most baking recipes.
