    I am from America. The flour here in Serbia is different than we have back home. Can you tell me which flour to use? I have seen t-400 and t-500; do I add baking powder or baking soda and salt? I really need help with the flour uses. Thank you.  -  15 Jan 2011

    Made it healthier. I substitutes butter with light margarine and used soft brown sugar instead of caster sugar,so they came out healthier but still great tasting!  -  24 Dec 2010
