Recipes tips

If you're new to baking, here are a few tips to help you get the best results from your all-purpose flour recipe:

1. Measure your ingredients carefully. Baking is a science, and small variations in ingredient measurements can have a big impact on the final result. Use measuring cups and spoons to ensure accuracy.

2. Use cold butter. Cold butter is easier to cut into the flour mixture and helps create a flakier, more tender texture in your baked goods.

3. Don't overmix the dough. Overmixing can lead to tough, dense baked goods. Mix the dough until it just comes together, then stop.
