Substituting Cake Flour for All-Purpose Flour in Cookies

One option for softer, more delicate cookies is substituting cake flour for all-purpose flour.

Cake flour has less protein than all-purpose flour, so it does create more delicate textures. You can use it, but it might make some cookies a little crumbly since it doesn't give as much structure as the all-purpose.
