In the ingredients list it tells you to melt the butter. When you get to directions, it says to cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Melted butter and sugar do not become light and fluffy. Which is it's supposed to be, softened or melted? I am now starting over with softened butter.

Owner Response: Julie, From my experience using the Nordic Ware recipes, I soften the butter a bit and then mix it well with the sugar using an electric mixer. Once I get to a consistency where the mixture "peaks" similar to meringue, then I call it good. Enjoy your fall baking! From the Fancy Flours Staff
