Personal Notes:
Did you know that there were “methods” of measuring flour? I didn’t! I googled it, and now know that there are two ways to measure flour...dipping...and spooning. The dipping method is also called “dip and sweep”. So to do this method, you stick a measuring cup in the bag, scoop out the flour, overfilling the measuring cup. You then take the flat side of a butter knife to level the flour across the measuring cup. Who knew!!
