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'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?

Adds flavor.

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 icon_smile.gif...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!!
