Can cake flour be used to make cookies

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I'm out of all purpose flour.  Could I use cake flour instead to make chocolate chip cookies?

Cake flour is used when you want a fine crumb.
Depending on what kind of cookie it is as sometimes the other ingredients can be manipulated for an ok turnout.
Your call tho....is just an ok cookie good enuf for your needs?

If the fluffy cake like cookie isn't your thing do a search and see if there is a ratio available.
I like my cookies crispy chewy nom nom nom.

Hope the above makes sense.

I didn't make them.  I'm going to wait till I can buy the all purpose flour.  I didn't want to waste ingredients especially the chocolate chips if the cookies didn't turn out too good.  My cake flour and bread flour I'll just use what it's intended for.

Wise choice.
Would have done the same.

This is killing me here. You're all talking about "COOKIES". It doesn't matter what flour you use ... they're still "COOKIES". Cookies are eaten ... never wasted.
