Ok, I need to make these cookies tonight/tomorrow for a cookie order due on Saturday morning. And my dear husband tried to help and picked up the butter for me from the store. I just now noticed that though it's sweet cream butter, it's salted. What do I do? Can I still use it or does it require yet ANOTHER trip to the store?!? HELP!!!
I use salted all the time, it works fine. Cut down on the salt a little if you want to.
Oh thank you thank you thank you! I've never used it before, so I was terrified. You're a lifesaver!!
Yeah... I totally agree. I like salted butter better myself. So that's all I ever use. I have tried both and it is just my personal preference. HTH!
I also always use the salted ! Its always good !
I've only used salted. I never add salt to my recipe, so if ours calls for it, I'd either reduce it or leave it out. Good luck!
So why exactly does a cookie recipe call for salt? What does it do?
Try it without and try it with and make your own decision, of course.
I go between salted and unsalted all the time, always works out fine ...and as Paula Deen says "Every one in the south always uses salted butter to bake with"...ha ha..if she does it can't go wrong!!
