Lard in your recipes: from Joanna on 2006-05-13
I have now got your book and am looking through the recipes.
You have 'lard' listed for cripsbreads (eg sunflower) ~ is there any reason why this shouldn't be changed to butter or olive oil as we don't eat lard?
Thanks again for your time,

Lard is the traditional ingredient, but you can change it. It is a hard fat, so it helps to produce the biscuit texture.
I do use olive oil, so it does work.
