I want to try this recipe but i am confused. in the ingredients it says to use baking powder but in the directions it says baking soda. Which is it?

These are so good! Browning the butter adds an absolutely wonderful flavor. I only made a very small batch to try out the technique - never made cookies this way before. But you can be sure I'll be making them again...

These cookies are delicious! So light and buttery! I didn't make any changes other than using whole almonds instead of almond halves.
