Butter is better

In the name of using real foods (definitely a theme for me these days), I recently tried a new product from farmer-owned Organic Valley: Pasture Butter. This is the real deal, all right: churned from milk produced by cows grazing on nutrient-rich pasture from May to Sept. So it's high in butterfat (84 percent!), but they say it's also got more omega-3s than your typical butter. But let's face it, I don't eat butter for the omegas; I eat it, in small amounts, because it's so delicious. I used Pasture Butter to make a batch of dark-chocolate-chip cookies the other day, using Ghirardelli's 60 percent cocoa chips and King Arthur's organic white whole-wheat flour; they were awesome. Most got sent off to a college-age friend so as to avoid eating the whole batch myself!
