Cookie Recipes – Questions
Do cookies need yeast?
No. Most traditional cookie recipes do not use yeast. Instead, many cookie recipes (i.e. chocolate chip cookies) use baking soda or baking powder as a leavening agent. These ingredients help cookies to quickly rise and become more airy & fluffy. Moreover, many easy-to-make cookies are fully cooked with 8-11 minutes and this is not nearly enough time for yeast to rise.
Why is baking soda added to cookie recipes?
Baking soda is added to many cookie recipes because it acts a “leavening” agent. The baking soda helps the cookie dough to rise during the baking process. This results in an airier & fluffier cookie.
