Dear Barbara: My neighbor lady gave me a bag of “self-rising” flour. I was going to make cookies with it, but I wasn’t sure if that would change the taste of the cookies. The recipe didn’t call for self-rising flour. Are they interchangeable? — Jan from Acampo

Dear Jan: Self-rising flour contains salt and leavening (baking powder). If the recipe called for all-purpose flour, and all you had was self-rising flour, you could have used it by leaving out the salt and the baking powder that the recipe called for since it is already in the flour. If you had a recipe that called for self-rising flour, and you didn’t have any, you can make your own by adding 1 cup of all-purpose flour, plus 1½ teaspoons of baking powder and ½ teaspoon of salt, and sift them together.
