I love olive oil. I use it every day. I also love butter… but I use it sparingly. Butter tastes so good, but I love the benefits of olive oil. So when I was at Walmart recently and saw Star Butter flavored Olive Oil… I grabbed that bottle of olive oil up.
Just so you know how much I really love butter, I used to get in the fridge and get sticks of butter and go hide under the dining room table and eat them. Seriously. I’m a butter freak. My Mom said that she found me eating butter like that several times as a child.
I grew out of that phase, thankfully, but I love the flavor of butter still today. Plus my waistline thanks me.
As I was saying, I saw the Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil at Walmart with a conversion chart tag on the bottle and knew this was an answer to my problems (well, at least to the problem of how to have that rich buttery taste with the goodness of olive oil in my recipes).
If you’re gluten intolerant, Star Olive Oil is gluten free and dairy free, too.
I’ve been craving oatmeal raisin cookies, my all-time favorite cookie, but hate using a stick of butter to make them. I never even thought about using olive oil in baking before, either, but with the butter flavored olive oil, I had to try it.
I also decided to use the Star Butter flavored Olive Oil to baste my turkey breast for Thanksgiving. I rubbed it on the inside of the turkey skin and all over the outside. It turned out perfectly. It was gobbled up… pun intended.
And yesterday I was wanting some roasted brussel sprouts and I love keeping it simple with brussel sprouts, with just a little salt, pepper, and either olive oil or butter. Now I can do both! Ta-Da!
Okay, without further ado, here’s my Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil recipe:
I plan on using the butter flavored olive oil to replace butter on a regular basis from now on. Oh, don’t worry, I won’t be hiding under my dining room table drinking the bottle. Even if it does taste THAT good!
Whether you’re making an entree, a side dish, or dessert… STAR Butter flavored Olive Oil is the “star” of the show.
