I think everyone understands this...and thank you for the article. It's good to have different info. to be able to make choices from.
Now, to my opinion...BUTTER! I have used margarine (Imperial is my choice) in my sugar cookies for one, because it's cheaper to make more batches, and I find that the cookies don't spread. However...butter tastes SO much better. I have done comparisons with chocolate chip cookies too, and I could tell a distinct difference.
Like someone said, a lot of people use margarine, because to them that is
butter, and they don't know what they are missing in real butter. When I 1st started baking all I used was Imperial.
Now...even if I have to cry when butter goes up in cost, I have to use it. I get mine from Costco.
