Can I sub shortening for butter or veg oil in a cake or cookie rec?

Ran out of oil for cake recipe and not enough butter for cookie recipe can I use shortening?

Answer #1

You can use shortening in a cake (applesauce works good too) but I would advise against using it in cookies unless you want them to turn out thick and cake-like.

If you have margarine, that’s good in cookies.
