ok, so i was in whole foods this weekend, and FINALLY saw earth balance sticks. since i had been wanting to buy it for baking and it was only $2.50 (much cheaper than butter), i bought two packages.
ok. so i baked last night using a cookie recipe that i tried a month ago and the cookies turned out awesome then. it calls for a cup of butter, so i used half butter and half earth balance this time. there was a noticeable difference. the cookies got browner, and don't taste the same (can't describe what's "missing" but i think they almost taste oily?). is this a fluke or does earth balance not stack up as well as butter in baking? i was really hoping i could use less better. i was kind of disappointed with the results.
