00:13 you have to. So let's look at the
00:15 actual recipe itself okay.
00:18 Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
00:20 It calls for:
00:56 Okay now we listed a lot of ingredients in here
00:59 that people may not be familiar with and may want to talk
01:02 about that as we go through these ingredients
01:04 so. Well you know we can do is we can start off
01:06 because it that's a little bit to put
01:08 off this together okay. So let me just start off
01:10 with the this is a soy margarine looks like
01:13 regular margarine but it's a soy margarine
01:15 that's a lot of brands out there
01:17 right because we're trying to lot's of margarine
01:18 in the market now, because we trying to get away
01:20 from to using the other margarines that you know
01:23 the persons allergic to milk or they don't want
01:24 to have something with the casein
01:26 and it had been of course this margarine
01:28 will be one it works we got fructose in the place
01:30 of fruit sugar, it is a fruit sugar yes
01:33 and the place of regular white sugar right
01:36 and this is just out of the fruit sugar
01:38 it comes from the fruit itself naturally
01:40 okay little bit better. We also have Curtis
01:42 another new one is going to be are Egg Replacer yeah
01:45 Egg Replacer and that's Egg Replacer it's on the
01:47 market now it's in the regular grocery stores
01:49 it actually replaces the egg, it's a dried mixture
01:52 and so this is no cholesterol
01:54 no cholesterol what so ever and saturated fat
01:57 no it's actually using cornstarch
01:58 and other ingredients is to make it kind of
02:00 help things okay to fluff up alright
02:02 and we have that as well alright already using
02:03 and when using and this is also at regular
02:07 grocery store at the regular grocery stores
02:08 now have that alright. We've got a whole
02:10 wheat pastry flour okay now explain that what alright
02:14 now the whole wheat pastry flour is really we call
02:17 a summer wheat flour it's a summer wheat okay
02:20 you know the regular 100 percent whole wheat flour
02:22 is little bit heavier your pastry flour
02:24 is are called summer wheat flour
02:25 is they're lighter in texture and they don't give you that
02:28 heavy weightiness that you would have from the
02:30 whole wheat flour okay alright.
02:31 Then I'm using also an unbleached flour
02:35 with the germ okay alright and this is 1/4 of the cup
02:37 of unbleached flour with it germ and this
02:40 particular one is different from a regular
02:43 unbleached flour the unbleached flour
02:45 is have the germ
02:47 extracted from it so of course it's not as healthy.
02:49 This one is called unbleached flour with a germ.
02:52 Now someone called me once and he said
02:54 what if I can't find the unbleached flour
02:57 with the germ not a problem because what's missing
02:59 it actually the wheat germ itself
03:02 so I said then use your unbleached flour and put
03:04 about fourth of the teaspoon at the wheat germ in it
03:08 okay or go with that alright. Now
03:09 I'm gonna to begin because this takes a little bit
03:11 okay I'm gonna to start off and what you're gonna
03:13 to be doing Curtis and I'm going to go ahead on
03:14 start off the creaming of the margarine
03:17 with the sugar, the soy milk the vanilla
03:20 and also the Egg Replacer.
03:22 Okay what you're gonna be doing is we are gonna move
03:24 this out the way we're gonna to go ahead on
03:26 and you're gonna shift together, you got the
03:28 pastry flour the unbleached flour
03:30 and you got your salt and your baking powder
