That's the ratio of parts that usually make a easy, scrumptious cookie dough: 1 half sugar, 2 components fats, and three components flour. From there, upload whatever you want—chocolate, lemon and orange zest, nuts, poppy seeds, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, almond extract, or peanut butter, to call a number of favourite additions. exchange white sugar with brown for a darker, chewier cookie. upload baking powder and/or eggs for a lighter, airier texture.

Ratios are the start line from which one thousand diversifications commence.

French dressing is 3:1, or three elements oil to at least one half vinegar, and is without doubt one of the most valuable sauces possible, giving every little thing from grilled meats and fish to steamed greens or lettuces excessive taste.
