Spectrum Shortening?

Recommended Posts

In addition to gluten-free, I'm dairy free and soy free, as I'm trying to figure out what is still making me feel ill. So, I bought Spectrum's shortening (the one made only of palm oil), and I would like to substitute it for butter in a cookie recipe that calls for 1 cup of butter--is that too much to substitute, or do you think it would work okay?

Thanks to all the chefs out there who can help!

Hi Julie,

I use Spectrum, and substitute it exactly for butter. It has worked perfectly every time :)

Great! Even though I've been doing this for two years now, I'm still not exactly the greatest cook. I didn't want to get my mouth all watered for cookies and have it be a disaster :)

Thanks!

I use Spectrum sometimes too. Make sure you add salt to the recipe though or it will taste funny. I always leave the salt out when I'm baking with butter, since it's already salty, and the first cookies I made with Spectrum had a funny taste because I didn't think of it.
