Pink Himalayan salt is in fact the most perfect, all natural material to use in baking. It has a unique chemical structure that allows it to bind with the ingredients in your baking so they won't separate. The other benefit is that it doesn't damage the food or clothes you've been baking.
Sea salt is hard to use with your oven because it's so dense, plus there is no air movement when you bake. It will clump up, create cracks and scratch the inside of your oven. Your food won't be nice, and it won't brown evenly. With the Pink Himalayan salt, you get a perfectly balanced mixture with no cracks, clumps, or scratches.
Baking can be a bit daunting sometimes. It seems like you have to turn every object over, pouring out any excess grease and then be very careful not to let any cracks form. When you use standard table salt, you're usually left with little pellets all over the counter top. Baking soda also helps keep the salt from sticking to any surface it lands on, which makes cleaning a lot easier.
Salt and baking soda are pretty easy to use. You just add the pink Himalayan salt to your food, place it in the oven, and then watch the food cook. You won't be able to tell if there are any clumps of the pink Himalayan salt.
Baking soda will also help to seal the edges of your cookies, muffins, or loaves. Many professional bakers use pink Himalayan salt because it helps to seal in the gluten in your dough. It prevents air from making it loose and makes it harder for the edges to break. It also ensures that the cookies don't end up with a round edge.
Baking soda isn't the only thing that cooks up beautifully when combined with salt. You'll find your cookies are softer and tend to bake up a little faster. It can even help your cookie stick to the pan more securely. You might also find that your cookies are less crumbly, though this is really dependent on the size of your cookie pan.
For baking cake batter, you'll want to add some honey to the food and mix it well. Honey is a natural sweetener and has a delicious taste to it. You might want to make a simple syrup out of the honey as well to really add some depth to the cake.
You can add extra flavor to your cookies by baking them in the oven before adding the pink Himalayan salt. It's a more traditional way to do it, but it makes the dough more elastic and allows it to be rolled out without cracking. This can be tricky if you're using all white chocolate chips, but I'm not telling you to take it easy.
This method is best done if you have a hand mixer with the dough hook, but if you don't it's really not a problem. Place your dough in the bowl and begin kneading. You need to be very careful here because you don't want to risk crushing the air.
If you add sugar to your cookie dough, you will need to be careful that you don't crush the sugars. This is a pretty easy fix to the problem, but I recommend trying the Himalayan pink salt first to see how it affects the overall texture of your cookie dough. It works wonderfully for texture as well.
When your dough is almost ready, you can proceed with rolling out. There are a few tricks you can use to prevent sticking. It's especially important to make sure that you roll out your dough evenly.
I find that my dough does not stick when I roll it out until it is more than 2 inches thick. Once it's done, I throw a few chocolate chips on top and push the dough down on them. to give it a cute look and it gets baked up quickly and easily.
