Comments on recipe format and instructions: For clairty, I recommend that the instructions include that the butter and sugar should be mixed with an electric mixer. For ease in measuring, 10 Tbsp butter should be revised to 1/2 cup and 2 Tbsp butter. Is flour to be sifted and then measured? For ease in combining, I would recommend that the flour be sifted with the baking powder. Suggest moving step #6 to #1 followed by step #4.
