Wondering if I can use my high ratio shortening in my cookies since I'm almost out of Criso? Is it a good idea or not. Can you tell the difference? Do cookies turn out the same or better or worse? Any experience? icon_confused.gif Thanks!

Hmm, I've never baked a cookie with shortening. What kind of cookie are you making?

I think Sweetex can be baked with, but Alpine is for icing only.

Hi I was hoping to find an answer to this question too. Has anyone ever used hi-ratio shortening in anything other than frosting. Cookies, bars, coffeecake, etc?

Update I tried it in my auntie's chocolate chip cookie recipe. I just substituted the hi-ratio for the crisco. They came out the same no difference.
