    I was going to make cookies for my nephew's birthday tomorrow and just realized I'm out of all purpose. Can I use bread flour?

    This is the recipe I use, it's from Food Network Good Eats, and why he says to use bread flour. Hope this is helpful:

    "The water from the melted
    butter will combine during agitation with the
    higher protein of the bread flour therefore
    producing gluten ... which is chewy. Also,
    since bread flour can absorb much more
    liquid than all purpose flour, more moisture
    will stay in the cookie."

    "The Chewy" Chocolate Chip Cookie

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    2 sticks unsalted butter
    2 1/4 cups bread flour
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 1/4 cups brown sugar
    1 egg
    1 egg yolk
    2 tablespoons milk
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
    Hardware:
    Ice cream scooper (#20 disher)
    Parchment paper

    Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Melt the butter in a heavy-bottom medium saucepan over low heat. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda and set aside. Pour the melted butter in the mixer’s work bowl. Add the sugar and brown sugar. Cream the butter and sugars on medium speed. Add the egg, yolk, 2 tablespoons milk and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Slowly incorporate the flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Chill the dough, then scoop onto parchment-lined baking sheets, 6 cookies per sheet. Bake for 14 minutes or until golden brown, checking the cookies after 5 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet for even browning. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.

    So, why do I even buy all purpose? No reason? Cool. I'll drop that item from the list. Thanks for asking the question, Little Bird.

    This recipe sounds good. What size is a Ice cream scooper (#20 disher)? I have several cookie scoopers. Is this as large as a tablesppon? Or maybe 1/4 cup size? Thanks!
