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! :)

RE: Cookies; oil or butter for "crisp"?

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.

RE: Cookies; oil or butter for "crisp"?

I only use butter. I think it depends on the cookie and how you bake it, whether it is crisp or not.
