1. Re: can i use lard in cookies instead of shortening??I would not....I would not want my cookies tasting like bacon or anything.
2. I thought they outlawed lard. Thats what my mother-in-law told me. Where can I buy some! LOL
3. I don't even think you can get lard here in California. I've NEVER seen it in any grocery store, and I have NEVER cooked with it, not even once, in my whole life.
