WHAT TYPE OF BUTTER IS GOOD FOR BAKING?
The best butter for your baked goods depends on what type of recipe you’re whipping up. Unsalted, American-style butter works well in goods like cookies, pound cakes and pancakes that require the high-fat content of conventional butter and more flexibility with salt and flavor content.
European-style butter with a higher fat content works well when baking flaky, laminated doughs like puff pastries and pie crusts. If you’re feeling extra creative, try making butter from scratch to add to your favorite baked goods.
