I'm in the middle of baking cookies, the recipe calls for baking powder and I am out. Is there a substitute?

Try these baking substitutions:
· For 1 teaspoon of baking powder substitute ¼ tsp. baking soda plus 5/8 tsp. cream of tartar or ¼ tsp. baking soda plus ½ Tbsp. vinegar or lemon juice with milk to make ½ cup.
· 1 ounce chocolate = 3 Tbsp. cocoa plus 1 Tbps. Margarine/butter.
· 1 cup buttermilk = 1 Tbsp. vinegar or lemon plus enough milk to make 1 cup (let stand 5 minutes).
· Cake flour = 1 cup minus 2 Tbs. all-purpose flour.
