Tidbits from Tina
- Masa Harina is a fine corn flour and will yield a baked product less coarse than corn meal.
- Always let dough sit for 5 minutes before slicing to prevent matting of the dough.
- Baking Biscotti on both sides dries them out to store for longer periods of time.
- When cooking pasta for a buffet, always coat cooked pasta in butter and/or oil to prevent sticking together.
