  1. How much butter is needed? Does “butter paper” mean the wrapper the butter stick was in? Can wax paper or parchment paper be used instead?

    1. I apologize I forgot to add butter to the ingredient list! This recipe calls for 1/2 cup butter, I’ve updated the recipe. And yes, I am referring to the wax paper butter wrapper. You can use wax paper or parchment paper instead, but I like to use the butter wrapper to reduce waste 🙂
