Q&A: What could I substitute for sugar when baking cookies?

Question by Hank: What could I substitute for sugar when baking cookies?
I’m trying to make a healthy chocolate chip cookie and I want to replace the sugar with something healthier. I’m using applesauce for my butter, and someone told me I could cut the sugar by one third and be fine. I really enjoy baking but I also don;t want to get fat.

I need you to go on this website http://www.justcallmemaria.com/2012/03/oatmeal-lemon-creme-bars.html it is a recipe to lemon cookie bars and look at the steps to make it and please answer my question. My question is when do I add the egg? Do I cut the butter into the cookie mix then mix and then add the egg? Or cut the butter into the cookie mix then add the egg then mix altogether?
Thank you!

Butter has a different consistency in Europe. How do I adjust US recipes when baking cookies?

Question by : Butter has a different consistency in Europe. How do I adjust US recipes when baking cookies?
I live in Germany. Butter here has a much slipperier or oilier consistency than butter in the US. As a result, using German butter in a US cookie, cake and pastry recipes causes the the batter to melt and spread too thin when baked. Does this have something to do with the fat content in the butter? Does anyone know of a rule-of-thumb recipe conversion that will help remedy this?

Best answer:

Answer by sound
The fastest solution would be to substitute out butter for margarine. That is pretty much standard the world over. You can also look for a natural butter. The brand you are buying is probably chock foll of fillers, and that is making it oily if anything.

On the flip side, even switching the recommended amount of butter for pure oil of any kind would not have the effect you mentioned on a baking mix. Batter itself does not melt, and the oil would not cause it to spread like you described.

I know it is not the answer to your question, but the solution to your problem does not lay in the amount of oil in the butter. A more probable cause is a discrepancy in your conversion rates from US to Metric. Do not believe a cup with both measurements, especially if purchased over in Europe. Most documentation would be based on British volume measurements and not US ones.

When making chocolate chip cookies, do I roll them or flatten them before baking?

Question by XxxCatLuverxxX: When making chocolate chip cookies, do I roll them or flatten them before baking?
I’m about to make chocolate chip cookies! Do I roll them or roll them THEN flatten them before baking. Also, please don’t tell me to do what the recipe says because it doesn’t say so

Best answer:

Answer by Brit
When baking any type of cookies, the most common way to cook them is roll them into a ball.
They flatten as they cook.

Can we not use grease papers when baking cookies?

Question by ANN: Can we not use grease papers when baking cookies?
Im bored at home now and i wanna bake cookies but im too lazy to buy grease paper. Can we not use them?

Depends on the fat content of the cookie. If there is enough fat in the cookie they won’t stick, when I make chocolate chip cookies I never use anything on the cookie sheet.
