what are you making? I've only used butter in icing, but many here use margarine instead of butter in cookies. Wish I could be of more help, but if all else fails...just try it and see.

I use the imperial margarine and butter flavoring if you like it. It works just fine for me.

I will use butter all the time in cooking (that's what I grew up with). Now I prefer half marg/butter and all butter in BC but you'll be fine.

There is a lot more water/liquid in margarine than in butter, but if you adjust for that, it should be fine, especially in cookies.
