'To Be....Butter, Or Not To Be....Butter'!

Mr. Wug: What difference does it make if I use margarine or butter in your cookie recipe?! I'm using butter. Will the cookies come out flatter or fluffier or cake-ier?!

          Mrs. Wug: Actually, it doesn't really matter which one you use...I don't think. I just never used the margarine that the recipe called for.

Mr. Wug: Really? So you 'always' used butter, even though you saw that the recipe called for margarine?

          Mrs. Wug: Yeah, I think that if there's a choice between the 'real stuff', versus the 'fake stuff'....'real stuff' should win! LOL Besides, I like my cookies tasting rich, and a little bit crispier. The butter makes them a little bit crispier...But you go ahead and put the margarine in there like the recipe called for. Your cookies will come out nice and round and perfect..just like you like them! :-)

Mr. Wug: Well.......I don't have no margarine.

          Mrs. Wug: So what were you gonna do if I said put margarine in it?!

Mr. Wug: I guess I would say...I don't have any margarine. I have butter, so I'm just gonna use butter!...especially if you say it tastes better!....I asked because I saw you had margarine scratched out, and butter inserted, on the recipe. I didn't know if it would make a difference.

          Mrs. Wug: Well, I can tell you...butter ALWAYS makes a difference!...Of course there is the down side.

Mr. Wug: What's that? O_O

          Mrs. Wug: Margarine goes into your body like a tourist. It wanders around here and there, looks around, and leaves...without spending too much money on gifts. :-)) ...Butter goes into your body, finds your major arteries, grabs them by the teeth like a junkyard dog, growls and gnaws at them...until you're dead! LOL

Mr. Wug: Well, I don't want it to go that far!... O_O ...I want the butter to just growl at my arteries, shake 'em around a while, slob on 'em, and drop 'em, and walk away. LOL

          Mrs. Wug: Well, forget about the margarine...BUTTER it is!!...but maybe what you can do is just don't eat that many cookies. :-)

Mr. Wug: Hmmm...Sooooooo how many slices of cheesecake can I eat?!... There isn't any butter in that at all!! :-)

          Mrs. Wug: ...*shaking my head*...dropping it and walking away.


  1. haha, this is so funny. I'm always a fan of butter over Margarine but I see why it can be a tough choice. Merry Christmas, the peanut butter cookies sound so delicious


  2. Dale, Hi!...Yeah, I'm always a fan of butter over margarine too! Now, after tasting the cookies out of the oven, hubby is too! ^_^ Too bad I can't get some to you before they disappear!...Too late! :-))

  3. LOL! I love butter! I always use it instead of margarine in recipes because it tastes better to me.

  4. Pammy Sue, I totally agree!!!! The butter makes cookies a bit crispier too...just like I like 'em!! ^_^ Thanks for the comment.
