So I went to make some cookies the other day and was looking at margarine versus butter. Margarine had tons of trans fat while butter didn't! And I know trans. fat is really bad. But of course butter has way more calories and stuff. So... I bought butter! I can't remember the difference? Should I buy margarine next time?

Butter is Hallal, margarine can be Harram.

if you are really worried about all that.. the best thing is to substitute the margerine/butter with  olive or canola oil.. (my nutrition teacher said canola oil is better)

wsalam,

ok i think i understand it a bit better.  btw oil would change the taste and make it gross for cookies. applesauce sounds interesting, but again why make cookies, just eat applesauce right ;0

thanx for the help

You could try the butter flavor Crisco baking sticks.  No transfat and no cholesterol, vegetable oil based.   I've never noticed a taste nor texture diffference in what I bake when using it, although when it comes to sweet potatoe pie I won't give up my butter Smiley

A tablespoon of butter has 100 calories of fat!! Sheesh most recipes at least call for a stick...why do we eat cookies!!  cookie cookie cookie cookie cookie


Sincerely,
cookiemonster


btw as an aside I was looking up the calories of common Indian desserts:
these are for ONE SERVING size!!!


Kheer (rice pudding): 439 calories (75 from fat)

Gulab jamun (sweet tapioca ball things): 1 jamun 143 calories

Gajar ka Halva (carrot sweet thing): Calories 332 (from Fat 174)

Sevaiyyan: (sweet vermicelli) Calories 1369 Calories from Fat 583 (300 if don't use ghee and use lowfat milk and soybean margarine)

Ras Malai: (milk dessert thing) Calories 438 (from Fat 124)

Shankarpale: (diamond shape cookies): 1 cookie Calories 199 (from Fat 84)


WHAT THE HECK!!! How can anyone be Indian and not PHAT!!!

Woah is the vermicelli stuff made with heavy cream?  That would explain the calories: carbs (vermicelli and sugar) plus fats (cream).  I've only had it once or twice but it's one of my favorite.  Along with all the other stuff you listed  Roll Eyes
Speaking of calories I'm trying to cut down on bread.  It's really not easy in this country! everything's eaten with bread.  Yesterday I did really well but today no matter what I ate I felt hungry all day.

Nooooo! I need the exact size/weight of the gulab jamuns please  Smiley I refuse to accept that I took in 1430 calories in one sitting! By the way, this was a special occasion so no-one call me greedy! Everyone eats on Eid, that's the purpose of it, right?? *folds arms and glares defensively*

This sounds like my theory of partaking of goodies on "Donut Thursdays" at work; those goodies have zero calories Smiley
