Chocolate Chip Cookies with Lard
OK, I know this forum is more about healthy living and this might not qualify, BUT! I have an overabundance of lard and I'm trying to use it more in baking that calls for butter that I have to pay a lot for. My 10 year old daughter just made a batch of chocolate chip cookies and substituted lard for the butter. We added a little extra milk too. They came out wonderful, just a little crumblier than normal. No one complained!
I use lard for pie crusts and as the fat when I cook on the stovetop, but I'm wondering if anyone else has any pointers for wonderful uses I haven't thought of yet?
