When the weather outside is frightful…there’s nothing I love more than to bake! It’s such a fun family activity and keeps the house warm! My favorite things to bake are cookies and I know that my family appreciates it! My husband is a huge fan of plain ol’ chocolate chip cookies while my son favors sugar cookies. Me? I’ll take both!
There’s many times that I’ll be following a recipe and it calls for butter, so I just do what the recipe tells me to. But since I use spreads for almost everything else cooking-wise, why not for baking?
Unilever has a great initiative called “Good to Know” where they are spreading the word on their wide variety of soft spreads, including Country Crock, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!, Promise, Brummel & Brown, and Imperial! They have a spread for YOU and they are Good to Know because they:
· Have 0g trans fat per serving
· Contain no partially hydrogenated oils
· Have no cholesterol
· Are 70% less fat than butter per serving
· Have 30% fewer calories than butter per serving
Best of all, these spreads taste good too! I put it to the test by making Country Crock’s Country Chocolate Chippers Cookies and they were SO good! I didn’t even get an after picture of them because my family ate them so fast!
