Can you refresh my old, tired mind? I know if you use (butter or oil) in a cookie recipe the cookie will be moist or crisp.
Which do I use to make "crisp" cookies?
Butter for crisp cookies. Better flavor, too! :)
Well, I'd use butter over the oil since oil in there seems to always come out greasy for me, but when it comes to peanut butter cookies, I use shortening. They're crumbly that way. Using butter, they're softer. My sister will often mix butter and shortening.
I do half butter and half butter Crisco (sticks) - makes for a great cookie, but softer. I prefer softer cookies.
I only use butter. I think it depends on the cookie and how you bake it, whether it is crisp or not.
I can't tell you how many many years it's been since I've
purchased and Crisco. LOL So I was going to tell you
