Is it ever okay to use salted butter when I bake cookies?

    You can cut the salt in the rest of the recipe and most cooks believe that salted butter can be used interchangeably with unsalted if you do this, however we professionally trained cooks know that unsalted butter has a finer flavor than it’s salted counterpart.

    I always use salted butter and omit the salt in the recipe…

    I have use both salted and unsalted butter in cookie and baking recipes. If you use salted butter, just omit the salt required in the recipes. However, I normally use sweet butter for most baking purposes. If you only have the salted kind, it’s really quite okay- just omit the salt in the recipe, and don’t fret- cookies will come out fine.!!!

      I agree. I try to stay with unsalted but I do the same, just omit the salt if the butter is salted.

    I personally do not use salted butter for anything. You have no control over the saltiness and therefore consume more salt than you may need. Try sweet butter and add your own salt.
