  • Yup. The cookies may be a little lighter. They may cook a little faster, watch that they dont burn.

  • I think the trick is to adjust the amount of baking powder and/or salt that you put in? I'm not even sure where to look for a conversion. Sorry.

  • I wouldn't use it as bread flour is a very high gluten flour with small amounts of barley and either Vitamin C or Potassium Bromate in it to help the yeast work more efficiently. It just won't work as well in cookies.

  • If your talking about the better for bread flour (it comes in a yellow bag, can't remember the name of it), yes you can. Use it just as you would regular flour. That's the only flour we keep in the house and i use it for both bread and cookies.
