I have no butter for my chocolate chip cookies. What can I use instead? And how much? My cookies calls for one cup of butter.


1 Answer 1


Butter and shortening can generally be substituted for each other in cookie recipes if you keep a few things in mind: Since butter does contain water and less fat than shortening, you'll need to use more of it as a substitution. Also keep in the mind that the textures and shapes of the cookies will be different due to moisture content and melting points.
