Which ones do you prefer to use when making cookies and why? I have to admit I'm partial to butter; even when the recipe calls for something else 9 times out of 10 I'll use butter anyway. I just love the flavor it imparts in cookies. Sometimes if I need the dough to be less sticky I'll use shortening. For stuff like shortbread cookies and really crunchy cookies I'll use shortening. I don't use margarine often unless I just really want something sweet and I don't have any butter.
