Update: 8/10/2019 - We test baked a batch of gingerbread cookies with butter and they turned out awesome. You will need to adjust the liquid in the recipe when using butter as butter is 20% liquid. Use two sticks of salted butter (1 cup) and only 3/4 cup of unsulphured molasses instead of a cup. Adjust the vinegar to 5 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar instead of 2 tablespoons. That should do it! Enjoy!
