10 Delicious Holiday Treats Without Butter
Making treats together is one of our favorite ways to celebrate the holiday season! So, here are 10 holiday treats without butter.
According to the USDA, America is facing a butter shortage just ahead of the holiday season. As the butter supply goes down, the prices will likely continue to go up. We’ve already had difficulty finding it in our local grocery stores.
While the timing of this butter shortage could be WAY better, many wonderful holiday recipes don’t call for the ingredient. So here are ten of our favorite holiday treats that don’t need butter to be delicious!
