    Default stretching butter

    I was cruising various message boards on living frugaly, and came
    across this: to stretch your butter, simply take some of it out to
    soften, put it in your mixer, and add an equal part of canola oil, mix
    very well (i totally melted the butter) then toss it in a margarine
    tub. i tried this today, and it really works! personally, i'm afraid
    of margarine (ate it most of my life) because i've read on some nasty
    stuff that (may) be in it (the "bad for you" kinds of fats and such).
    and i (unfortunatly) like to use butter on most things. i also had
    the remenants of a tub of margerine sitting around (it had been our

    last) so i found this really useful! i only saw it on the one
    message board, so i thought i'd pass this along to y'all!!!

    Default

    Back in the days when people didn't know or care about Trans Fats I would bake cookies with 1/2 regular Crisco and 1/2 butter. The regular Crisco didn't clash with the butter flavor.

    I haven't used margerine in years.
