Just to let everyone know it's a half a cup of butter, 4 cups of flour, and 1/4 cups of sugar. I also used a extra 1/2 cup of milk because the mixture wasn't sticking

Quick question: would that be 1/2 CUP of whole milk? Not sure what the measurement is for the milk. Looking forward to making these. Thanks a million.
