Butter Does Work



More and more I have been substituting butter for the shortening fat in my baking recipes.
 
At first, I was using 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening.
 
But the shortening was still bothering me, so I decided to use the full butter this time around.
 
I had read online that it would change the consistancy of the finished product.
 
It was recommended to use a tad less of the butter.
 
But I just substituted the correct amount, and I saw no difference in the texture of the brownies that I made.
 
In fact, I thought they were even better - perhaps a bit richer.
 
I am glad the butter performs as good as the shortening.
 
It is more expensive, but I feel better using a natural fat as opposed to a man-made one.
 
And I know my body will respond better to it.
