Granted a little Baker's Ammonia goes a long way, but for the larger bakery operations we offer a bulk five pound size. This food grade ammonium carbonate consists of ammonium carbonate, ammonium bicarbonate and ammonium carbamate. Also called for in baking recipes as "Hartshorn Salt". It is popularly used as a leavening agent for flat pastries.


Makes about nine dozen three inch sized cookies.

Recipe from
  • 4 c. sifted all purpose flour
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. Baker’s Ammonia (ammonium carbonate)
  • 1 c. butter
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp. lemon zest
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 1/3 c. sugar (to sprinkle)

Sift flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and Baker’s Ammonia into large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in eggs and lemon; chill.

Roll dough 1/8 inch thick on floured surface; cut with cookie cutters; placed on greased cookie sheets. Combine egg white and water; brush over top of cookies; sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 375° F for 8 to 10 minutes.
