Is olive margarine a good substitute for butter for making cookies?
I like the crumbly texture and creamy rich taste that you would get from baking with butter but am looking for a non-dairy alternative. Substituting with oils and vegetable shortening seems to result in heavy "cake"-like cookies which I don't like so much. Taste-wise also not as yummy as butter made cookies.
It's not going to come out the same. There's not a lot you can do about that. Olive margarine is a bit of a misleading thing... it's usually only about 10-15% olive oil.
Since the food Nazis started their war on butter and lard, I've tried all forms off vegetable substitutes, all a waste of time, I went back to lard or unsalted butter. Unsalted butter especially for cakes and biscuits, waste of time using anything else, the butter is part of the flavour as well as being more effective in the mixing.
