What is the difference between self-rising flour and all-purpose flour?
All-purpose flour is versatile as it contains an average amount of protein. Self-rising flour should only be used when a recipe calls for self-rising flour because salt and baking powder (which is a leavening agent) have been added and distributed evenly through the flour
Self-rising and all-purpose white flour serve different baking purposes. Do not use self-rising flour in place of all-purpose flour or the outcome and result of your baking may be disappointing.
What is the best butter to make cookies?
I always recommend using unsalted butter when baking. Not because you do not want salt but because each brand of butter will add different amounts of salt to their product. The best way to control the ingredients is to add the salt yourself.
