Who's with me? I love butter. Whenever I find it on sale I buy at least 6 packages. Unless its challenge butter on sale in which case, I buy as much as they have. I love butter. That being said I have started doing half butter half shortening in my baking goods and love it. I hate cookies that turn out like pancakes, doing half butter half shortening gave me the most beautiful cookies I've ever seen in my entire life. Plus it turns out I like frosting better when its half butter half shortening too. Oh the joys of life-- butter and shortening.


  1. I'm with you. Butter is terrific. I got a bazillion boxes when it was on super sale for 97 cents a pound.

  2. I totally agree. Butter gives fantastic flavor, Crisco gives a nice texture. I mix them as well.
