I just made these. I actually only had about 1/4 cup basil and I thought it was a good amount. I think I probably would not have liked them very much if I had used the full amount of basil, as the flavor would have been very strong. I also felt that these were very salty. I'm just not sure I can cut back on the salt and still have them come out right... I don't have enough baking expertise to know how adjustments to ingredient quantities affect a recipe.
