I either over purchased ingredients to bake goodies at Christmas, or I under baked. Maybe it was a combination of the two, but whatever the reason is I have a lot of extra ingredients leftover.
To have the best results when baking, it is recommended that ingredients are used within the guidelines listed below.
Best if used by:
Flour: Opened; 6 to 8 months. Unopened; 12 months.
Sugar: Doesn't spoil, but may change flavor with age.
Brown sugar: Unopened; 4 months.
Confectioner's sugar: Unopened; 18 months.
Baking Soda: Opened; 6 months. Unopened; 18 months.
Baking powder: Opened; 3 months. Unopened; 6 months.
Solid Shortening: Opened; 3 months. Unopened; 8 months.
Cocoa: Opened; 1 year.
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: Best if used before 18 to 24 months after the date of purchase.
