O.K. how do you cook with Sunbutter or the other stuff? I am wanting to try it, but had been told you have to add lemon to keep the color. Any ideas?

I've never had a problem just subing Sunbutter or soybutter for peanut butter in recipes.

If you make peanut butter cookies and substiture soy butter, do you use smooth or crunchy?

I use smooth. I've never been a fan of crunchy peanut butter so we haven't tried the crunchy version of the subs.

For the sandwiches we use both. It sounds like the cookies would be better with creamy.

There is a Snacks and Recipes board that has some sunbutter recipes on it.

Sunbutter cookies will turn green inside after a bit. There is supposed to be something you can add to prevent this; I've read about it in other threads. I've switched to soy butter, which doesn't do that and has a more general peanut butter cookie taste, we think. I like Sunbutter better for sandwiches, but it tastes like sunflower seeds. The unsweetened soy butter can be substituted directly for peanut butter in cookies.

O.K., I know it can be substituted, but how does it taste? I am wanting to use it on family who love pb cookies. Will they accept the change or should I just go with Oreos?
And what is the ratio of what ever to keep the cookies from turning green. That would be cool today (St. Patty) but tomorrow I'm not so sure lol.

So far, we haven't had a problem using the Sunbutter as a straight substitute. And the cookies never last more than a couple of days unless I freeze them, so I've yet to see them turn green! Even the 'kraft' recipe of pb, butter, sugar and eggs (no flour) turn out fine. They're not to my taste - toosweet and soft - but DD loves them.

I made the type of cookies that are usually peanut butter with a hershey's kiss on them for Christmas and didn't tell anyone that I substituted soybutter and no one could tell the difference--didn't get one comment about them tasting different. They were yummy!
