    I dit these and they turned out way too salty. We couldn’t eat them.

      I am so sorry these didn’t turn out for you. If you find the salt is too much, simply decrease the amount of garlic salt in the recipe, or use garlic powder instead.

      Thanks for letting us know Deb. I think it can depend on the size you make them as well. Sorry it was less than you expected but I hope you enjoyed the ones you did get!
