I love baking this time of year, and with my huge list of all of the different Christmas cookies and other delicious treats I want to bake, I’m always afraid that I’ll run out of the basics. While we always have plenty of granulated sugar on hand, I often find myself having to plan out special trips to make sure I have enough flour and brown sugar, but not any more!
Now, I total up the amounts of sugar, brown sugar, flour, butter, eggs, etc that I need to make all of my recipes and then buy enough ingredients in 1 trip to the store. I keep this little cheat sheet printed out in a few places … inside my favorite cookbook, in the pantry, and even directly on the sugar & flour canisters.
Go ahead, PIN it now, print it out, and make sure you don’t run out of these basic baking essentials this holiday season (or any other time you feel like doing a lot of baking).
