butter powder... pie crust question

megan | Mar 7, 2005 06:21 PM

hi all... found a recipe for pie crust that calls for butter powder. from what I have found on the www is that butter powder was "created" for the processed food industry to add shelf-stable buttery flavor to foods.. this kind of creeps me out... is this stuff like that freakish, cheese powder that comes in a box of kraft mac'n'cheese???

does it taste good? the recipe calls for crisco and butter powder... would i be better off taste wise to just use butter instead?

please let me know. thanks in advance!
