Can I use butter in a molasses cookie recipe instead of margarine I

    It looks like you haven't finished writing. Was there supposed to be something after last "I"? – Mołot Dec 11 '18 at 20:03

Definitely yes, and they will probably taste better. 1:1 substitution.

    To me, margarine recipes seem to come from time period when the market tried to convince us they were so much healthier than butter. I even have some old family recipes that called specifically for oleo. Agree completely, should work fine and taste better. – dlb Dec 11 '18 at 20:59
  • @ Barb, Butter will make the cookies spread out more during baking, so they will turn out flatter. You may have to give more space between them to allow for that. – Backyard Chef Dec 11 '18 at 22:14
