About this item

  • Baker's Ammonia (Ammonium Carbonate) is a leavening ingredient called for in many old fashioned recipes. It is also called "hartshorn".
  • Baker's Ammonia is used to make extra-crisp cookies or crackers. Unlike baking powder or soda, it does not leave an alkaline off-flavor in baked goods. It is not used for leavening in cakes or other large-volume items as the ammonia gas will not evaporate entirely.

About Us

Pharmacist O.K. Grettenberger, founded LorAnn Oils in 1962 and named the company in honor of his wife, Laura, and their only daughter, Ann. Originally, LorAnn Oils bottled and distributed about 8 to 10 core essential oils such as peppermint and clove and distribution was limited to pharmacies. Over the years, the business has expanded its product offerings and we now sell to a wide variety of retailers, manufacturers, health practitioners and home consumers. LorAnn is known for concentrated, professional strength flavorings and essential oils, but the LorAnn product line encompasses a variety of candy making and baking supplies in addition to our many flavoring options: Super-Strength Flavors, Premium Vanilla Extracts, Vanilla Bean Paste, Bakery Emulsions and the Flavor Fountain line of flavorings for frozen yogurt and ice cream.

Product Description

Yes, it has a very strong smell when baking, don't worry, it totally dissipates by the time The cookies are done. 3.5-Ounce container. Ammonium carbonate in the baking industry prior to the mid-19th century, the only leavening system used in baked goods was the old fermentation process. About the same time in England, a revolutionary method of producing ammonium carbonate, by the distillation of deer Horns was developed and became commonly known as "harts horn". Eventually, this form of ammonium carbonate became more readily known as "bakers Ammonia", which it is still referred to in today's baking industry. "Bakers Ammonia", or ammonium carbonate, is a uniform high purity leavening agent, produced by a chemical reaction of Ammonia, carbon dioxide and water. Ammonium carbonate is a product of exceptionally high quality and should not be confused with ammonium bicarbonate, which has a lower Ammonia content. Ammonium carbonate is a White crystalline powder which yields a strong ammoniac odor. It decomposes into Ammonia, carbon dioxide and water At elevated Temperatures. This unique property of complete decomposition into gaseous products at temperatures above 59oc is one of the most important features of this product. Decomposition occurs slowly when ammonium carbonate is opened to the atmosphere, but increases significantly when exposed to higher temperatures normally used in the baking process. Ammonium carbonate can be dissolved in water At room temperature, which is a convenient way to add to dough for even distribution.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...AND CLEANS YOUR OVEN AT THE SAME TIME!
By DaddyBil on May 12, 2015
I don't know too many people that know anything about this--and I love the look on their faces when you tell them they are eating ammonia cookies! LOL (Hey, ya gotta have some fun in life, right?). I was brought up on these cookies, so the 'freak factor' of the ammonium carbonate is long gone for me. I use this with a family recipe from the late 1800's as a substitute for the standard sugar cut-out cookie, and the cookies always turn out perfect. And I mean perfect. They are light, airy, yet hold their shape and don't fall apart. Providing you don't roll the dough too thin, you get a substantial cookie (a good 1/4"+ thick) that isn't tough, has visible layers and has an excellent 'crumb'.

One bonus is that no one eats the raw dough--so you get to have ALL the cookies baked. Another bonus is that it cleans your oven at the same time! (Kidding!), but I will warn you, DO NOT OPEN that oven door to check on them--the fumes will definitely burn your corneas off. If it has a window in the door, use that. And besides, they cook for such a short period of time, I think you can hold back the anticipation for the 6 minutes they are in the oven.

The dough should be flavored (anise or lemon is best), and they must be frosted--either with a buttercream or if you want to get nice and fancy, a royal icing. The dough isn't very sweet, so it gets it sweetness from the frosting.

Lorann Oils has the most amazing baking supplies you will be hard pressed to go anywhere else. Yes, they are on the spendy side, but you get what you pay for. Their flavorings--extracts and emulsions--are superb and what professional bakers use. Highly recommend perusing their site and getting your wish list together.

PRO: The ammonium carbonate is an amazing leavening agent, and fantastic reactions from people when you tell them they've just bitten into an ammonia cookie;
CON: Can't think of any
