Hi,

I just tried making rolled butter cream for the first time for cookies.

It was UBER hard to work with, and then I took a bite and lets just saw... well it tasted like crap.

is there a way to make rolled butter cream without shortening as the main ingresiant? Or alnother recipe I can try, It was so gross,

TIA

i've done my rolled bc and used half butter. had the same consistency but better taste. I'm definitely not an expert though!

Oh, I'm so sorry Sweetheart, I was just giving another viewpoint.

You're most certainly entitled to your opinion. icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif
