What happens to cookies when you don't add baking soda?!

Question: What happens to cookies when you don't add baking soda!?
I made chocolate chip cookie batter, but I don't have baking soda (only baking powder)!. Will they taste ok!? What does baking soda do!?[email protected]@Com

Baking soda was called for in the recipe because you have brown sugar in it, don't bake them without the leavener!. Use twice as much baking powder as the recipe calls for baking soda!. In other words, if the recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of baking soda, use 2 teaspoons of baking powder!.[email protected]@Com

baking powder and baking soda cause the cookies to rise!. They will be unleavened cakes and probably really flat and crispy if you don't use the baking soda!. More like crackers than like cookies!. Use the baking powder in the same measurement to fix this problem!. Or you can go to recipezaar and find a recipe that calls for baking powder instead of the baking soda!.

Next time make sure you have enough ingredients to make the recipe properly!.[email protected]@Com

They won't rise!. If you have cream of tartar, add a dash to the baking powder before you add it (ratio 2:1 crm of tartar:baking powder!.

Making Baking Powder

* You need baking soda and cream of tartar to make baking powder!.
* Mix 2 parts cream of tartar with 1 part baking soda!. For example, mix 2 tsp cream of tartar with 1 tsp baking soda!.
* Use the amount of baking powder called for by the recipe!. No matter how much homemade baking powder you made, if the recipe calls for 1-1/2 tsp, add exactly 1-1/2 tsp of your mixture!.[email protected]@Com

baking soda makes them rise!. If you left it out, they will spread out very thin, not rise, and be crispy, flat things!. Don't bake as long as the recipe says or you'll burn them!.[email protected]@Com
