Cooking Questions

Hi-oh! I've added this formspring box for asking cooking questions. I'll get an email and respond as soon as I can. We'll see together how this little thing works out, and tweek it if necessary. Sooo get to asking!

The first Question- And it's a good one!

Have you ever made the peanut blossom cookies? If yes, do you use butter or shortening?

Hi! I use Shortening for PB Blossoms. You could use butter, but I would get my dough really cold before I bake it. The reason that you use shortening vs. butter is because they melt at different temps. When you use shortening you want the fat to hold out a little longer. Butter melts at a relatively low temp, there for the chilling the dough will help.
