What is the difference between bread flour and regular flour?

I've been craving cookies, but the regular flour I had had those little bugs in it. I have lots of bug-free bread flour though. Will it work?

Thanks.

Actually, bread flour is often labeled regular flour. The option is pastry flour (called cake flour if it is white). Your cookies should be fine, they are one of those foods unaffected by protein content (gluten is a protein that develops into long strings with kneading that give bread good texture). Pastry flour helps keep the crumbly texture in high fat products like shortbread and pie dough. White or whole grain "bread flour" will not affect the texture of your cookies.

Besides, ingredients are seldom what makes a cookie disaster--someone will eat your mistakes as quickly as they will your best offering., get baking girl.

Thanks to you Kamila, I ate too many cookies!


They turned out fine with the bread flour and I have been munching on them ever since.
