Better for Bread flour for shortbread cookies?

Question by Kristi G: Better for Bread flour for shortbread cookies?
I need to make shortbread cookies tonight but just realized I only have about half the all-purpose flour I need. I do have some Better for Bread flour. Will this ruin the recipe if I use half B4B flour?
Ahh! I don’t have a sifter! I should be more prepared.

Sift your b4b flour before measuring and it should be fine for the shortbread cookies.

Don’t forget to add AP flour to your shopping list!

    Take out 2 Tbsp of bread flour for each cup of it you sub for a/p flour. That shoudl approximate the same gluten content as intended in the recipe.
