I’m making chocolate chip cookies today – the best from Cook’s Illustrated. Anyway, just wanted to make sure you all knew to jab your whisk into your flour bin or bag and stir it around to aerate your flour before lightly spooning it into your measuring cup(s) for things you’re baking… Think of how packed down that flour is from trucks bumping/packing it down on their drive to the store, the store staff dumping them hard on the shelf, you thumking it down into your shopping cart and car trunk, etc.

Be kind to your flour and let it breathe a little. It’s jammed in the way we jam ourselves into tight jeans. It’ll feel soooo good getting a little release from your whisk! Your baking will improve in quality too!
