Why spend time sorting in the course of the thousands of cookie recipes to be had in books, magazines, and on the web? Isn't it more straightforward simply to take into account 1-2-3? That's the ratio of components that often make a simple, scrumptious cookie dough: 1 half sugar, 2 elements fats, and three elements flour.

Ratios are the place to begin from which one thousand diversifications commence.

Ratios are the straightforward proportions of 1 component to a different. Biscuit dough is 3:1:2—or three elements flour, 1 half fats, and a pair of components liquid. This ratio is the start of many diversifications, and as the biscuit takes candy and savory flavors with equivalent grace, you could most sensible it with whipped cream and strawberries or sausage gravy. French dressing is 3:1, or three elements oil to at least one half vinegar, and is among the most respected sauces that you can think of, giving every little thing from grilled meats and fish to steamed greens or lettuces extreme taste.
