Did You Know?        

sifterThis recipe calls for sifted flour.  This is a fun activity for kids to do, but not required if you don't have a sifter.  Instead of sifting, stir the flour with a spoon and lightly scoop into a measuring cup.  Level off with the straight edge of a knife for a good measure.
