Long story; I have a coworker who is born in America and moved to Sweden for love. She'd done some Hershey's Kisses cookies that were candy also to the eyes. I now got hold of some Hershey's kisses and want to make some of them.
However, the recipe calls for shortening. We don't have that in Sweden. I looked at what shortening contained and I felt that it was not for me... I prefer as little processing to go into my raw materials as possible. I'm a cream and butter kinda girl.
So the question is, can I replace shortening with butter? Do I perhaps need to add something else to the mix to get the same texture? I do want the pretty cookies looking as nice as hers did.
The cookies are called Hershey's Kisses Peanut Butter cookies and can be found on Hershey's web page.
