  • I do it a lot too. For baking, you'll get a less 'puffy, cake-like' cookie by using butter. I usually substitute butter in most of my baking recipes because I like the taste of butter better and I like the outcome of the baked good better.

  • I think so, one is just thicker than the other: not for sure which one, but they taste the same to me.....

  • Of coarse! Butter is actually better. But everything in moderation.
