I love to bake cookies–plain and simple. I will always try to experiment with cookies to see if I can find the perfect flavor combination. Although some cookies do well, being on the flatter side, (chocolate chip and sugar cookies for example) sometimes I want my cookies on the cakey side. So I began to do research and I found my answer–baking powder. I am going to share with you what baking powder is and what effect it will have on your cookies.
