Tips

Frosting creationd

Frosting creationd

I would not use the base frosting, use your own. The base is way to runny and thin. Other than that, i love it!


Butter or margarine

Butter or margarine

When a recipe calls for butter...ALWAYS ALWAYS use butter. When it calls for butter OR margarine, then use either. Here's the biggest reason. It is the difference between a cookie that has a cakey kind of texture and one called a shortbread that MELTS in your mouth and is crumbly. The reason is margarine has water in it. You could use shortning in place of butter with maybe butter flavoring
