The flavor was perfect! I used just a pinch of salt, since the butter was salted already, and the balance of flavors turned out very well. Next time around I will refrigerate the dough before baking because they spread out a bit more than I would have liked. Still tasty though!

Very good. Next time I'll try half the amount of salt but otherwise very good.
