I always used Parkay Oleo when baking and the receipe called for either butter or oleo.  But now I cannot find Parkay at my supermarket.   Any suggestions?

ConAgra Foods makes parkay and it is still being made and sold. It does have a new look though.

Our Walmart carries Parkay.  I like to use it in cooking and some baking.

Always watch the water content in margarine.  If it contains a high amount of water you probably should not use it for baking.
The package should state the water or oil content. Also many packages will let you know if the product can be used for baking.

You need at least 60% fat content for baking.I like Smart balance the original not low fat.It's great for cooking and baking and it has no hydrogenated fats.It's a little more expensive but it does taste good.

I buy butter from Costco.  Four pounds at once.  I keep it in the freezer until I need it.  To me butter is the best for cookies.  I did find "I can't believe it's not butter" In cubes at our local supermarket.  I used it when my Great Niece came over for dinner at Christmas time.  She is a Vegan, and won't eat anything that has any animal products in it.   What a pain!!!!!!
