Definitions for "Folding"
Keywords:  spatula, gently, airy, beaten, heavier
Means of mixing a light, airy mixture (like whipped cream or beaten egg whites) with a thick, heavier mixture so as not to flatten the air out of the resulting dough. Pour the light mixture over the heavy mixture in a large bowl. With a rubber spatula, cut down to the bottom of the bowl, turn the spatula, carefully lift up some of the mixture and turn over gently onto the top of the mixture. Give the bowl a quarter turn, and repeat only until the mixture is blended.
Usually in baking, to gently mix ingredients when you need to maintain air content, such as whipped egg whites or cream. Best done with a spatula.
To mix a light airy whisked mixture with a heavier one by adding the lighter mixture on top of the heavier one using a large metal spoon in a gentle figure of eight motion to mix. Folding gently combines the two mixtures without losing too much air.
