when you make substitutions to a recipe......last week I made chocolate chip cookies for my brother, the man who has everything or goes out and buys it when he wants it. What do you do for someone like that?? You make cookies.
Since I've been trying to be gluten free, I didn't have any regular flour and the recipe called for 2 cups. So I used 1 cup of Bob's All-Purpose Gluten Free Flour and 1 cup of whole wheat flour, the course kind not the fine ground pastry type. They tasted great, but they flattened out to thinner than a pancake...and they were very crumbly!
so, the next time you're making substitutions in your chocolate chip cookies for your brother's birthday, don't use gluten free flour!!
