I'm going to use White Lily flour for chocolate chip cookies. I noticed on the bag you should use 2 tbs. extra flour to every cup of flour. Why do you have to do this? Wouldn't doing this make the cookies to dry?
It does have an acrylic splash guard to protect your cook book. I never had much of a problem keeping my books open on the counter my problem was getting them smeared with food. This way the book is protected and not laying flat on the counter.
Update: I did buy Clear Solutions jumbo cookbook holder from Amazon to give to my daughter for her bridal shower. I love it. Planning on buying one for myself. Holds thin and thick cookbooks. Highly recommend.
