MAKING COOKIES RIGHT NOW NEED HELP!!!!
 
I am making oatmeal raisin cookies with my 3 yr old and it calls for 1 teaspoon of baking soda. Well I am out I don't have any baking soda:( Is there something I can put in its place? Can I just leave it out? Anyone know what is does exactly? Ds is going to be so sad if we can't make these. Help a mama out please.

I found this.

Usually, you would want to make sure to use baking soda, but the only possibility I can think of would be Cream of Tartar. But, you have to be very careful with how much you use because it can really fluff up what ever it is your baking.

It won't be the "perfect" substititue, but I'd use twice as much baking powder. Don't just leave it out, your cookies will come out flat and hard.

Baking powder is a combination of both cream of tartar and baking soda.

The recipe doesn't call for baking powder just soda. It is the recipe in the lid of my quaker oats oatmeal container/

Use the baking powder isntead of the soda, but use twice as much since the baking powder is only like 33% baking soda. The cream of tartar that makes up the other 77% will also help the rise, but you'll still need more. I hope that makes sense.

I love the disappearing cookies recipe!
