She’s baking cookies.

My daughter just called and asked “unsalted butter or salted?”

I’m so proud.

(Not that she’s baking-she’s been able to follow a recipe for years, but that she knows about salted and unsalted butter and that the use of one vs. the other could make a difference in her final product.)

Alternate title: Yes, I’m a big, fat, baking geek….

    The general rule I follow is to use “regular butter” (salted) for all recipes that don’t specify “unsalted.”

    Oh, and the cookies were fabulous. She did a really great job.

    Oh, and you wouldn’t believe it, but my husband has made popcorn and put unsalted butter on it, not once, but twice and then been like “Huh? this doesn’t taste right.” I’ve taken to HIDING the unsalted butter, which doesn’t sound nearly has dirty has hiding the salami…
