Have you tried the STAR Butter Flavored Olive Oil?
I saw someone do a blog post about using it to make chocolate chip cookies a couple months back and was immediately intrigued. I really like oil over butter in certain baked goods but I still want that butter taste so this is kind of the perfect product for me. It’s also great because my stove hates me and trying to melt butter on it usually ends with brown butter and I don’t always want brown butter!
I found it at Walmart with all the other olive oils:
I typically wouldn’t use an olive oil for baking since they do have a very distinct flavor but this one is meant for baking. Or cooking. Or whatever you want!
I’ve been in the mood for peanut butter and jelly bars for weeks and finally decided to make them using this in place or the butter I would normally use. They turned out delicious and buttery in all the right ways!
The bars themselves are delicious. Like a peanut butter sandwich but obviously better! The cookie part stays nice and soft with the top bits getting just a tiny bit crisp. And the salty peanuts on top are the perfect compliment to the super sweet jelly. If you’ve never made PB&J bars before, I definitely suggest you try them.
