Love this recipe as a base. Even works at high altitude, which is a plus. I add vanilla extract and a drop of lemon extract for a "fresher" taste. They don't spread and the shapes stay sharp. I do frost them with buttercream icing, which unfortunately makes them soft. But, that's the way the family likes them. Winner!

Don't salt until finished pressure cooking! Salt toughens the outer skins of beans. You can pressure soak them, then rinse/dumping the old water, then pressure cook them with new water. Extra step if you haven't remembered to soak, but it still works. Less gas, speedy (though not as speedy cooking as remembering to soak). Salt at the end to taste....
