Is real butter always better? I thought so for years. Wouldn't dare use anything else in my baking, etc.

Yesterday I was baking some of my peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, and I always use butter, no Crisco or other shortening. However, I was saving the butter I had for some other recipes, so I halved it with Crisco shortening for the cookies.

Frankly, I think they taste better!

Is this something all other cooks know except me?

Hmmm, think I better go eat one of those cookies ...
