First we're going to mix up our dry ingredients in a separate bowl. It's important to combine the dry ingredients, which for this recipe just includes flour and baking powder. Because if you mix the dry ingredients separately in with the liquid ones you can have a tendency of clumping them which means they're not going to be thoroughly mixed throughout. We're going to add three and a half cups of flour, you want to gently scoop it into the measuring cup. You don't want to pack that flour in otherwise you'll have too much and your cookies will turn out to be dry or they won't hold together properly. And here is two. And you'll notice, I'm using unbleached flour. For white flour it's better to use unbleached rather than bleached flour because it has less processing and less chemicals in it. The taste is the same, it's only a touch darker which really won't make a difference for anything because once you cook something it's going to be browning anyway. There's three, get that last bit of from the measuring cup. And then a half. Also, when measuring dry ingredients, it's important to have the exact measuring cup size you need. If you are trying to use a larger measuring cup and just fill it half way, it's never going to be exact. And then we are going to add one tablespoon baking powder, same thing, just scoop it in, level it off and pour it in. And it doesn't have to be, we want it combined but you don't have to spend a lot of time mixing it you just want to make sure that there aren't any clumps of baking powder so that when you mix the dry and wet ingredients that everything gets mixed in evenly.
