    I use the sour milk trick all the time-when I don't want to splurge on buttermilk. Love these, great post.

    OK...willing to give these a go. Never have made and used sour milk in a recipe. I am trusting you here! LOL

    Bit of confusion though...ingredients lists shortening but directions say butter. Is it ok if I use butter instead of shortening?
