Have no butter and can't get out to get any ATM.

If so, do you have a recipe?

Yes you can.
It's not worth it though.

Knew someone would say that.
Thanks, will just wait until tomorrow to cook then.

You can use your usual recipe, they should be interchangeable.

I rarely buy butter, margarine works fine. it does affect taste a little, but not enormously. like pp said, just replace butter with margarine in your usual recipe.

I rarely use butter for pastry. You can make excellent pastry with margarine. Usually the best pastry has lard in it as well.

Yes you can - mix with milk instead of water and it will still taste good.
