I used salted butter and they were fine. The hardest part was hand grating the butter and the whole mix with your fingers thing I didn't go for. So this morning I grated the frozen butter with my food processor, switched to the chopping blade, added the flour and just pulsed it a couple of times. Dumped in the wet ingredients and pulsed just until combined. MUCH easier, (probably took a total of 1 minute) and texture is the same. These are excellent! For the raisin version, I suggest adding a generous amount of cinnamon. The cherry/almond combination is wonderful.
I also did a lemon/blueberry and a lemon/cranberry batch but definitely use fresh grated lemon rind along with lemon extract.
