Duh!!! I just Made No Fail Sugar Cookies

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I've been making cookies my whole life, and guess I was doing it wrong.
I made the No Fail Sugar Cookies and used dowel rods to measure the thickness of my dough....Wow!!! What a difference a little dowel makes. I've been making my cookies too thin forever...For anyone thinking of making these cookies---They taste GREAT and were SUPER EASY to make!!

Don't you just love them! I have gotten so many raves from them. I agree the thickness is the key! thumbs_up.gif

The taste is great, not too sweet. I haven't decorated them yet, I'm fixing to go bake the chocolate ones. I'm almost afraid to start decorating, but I'm going to give it a shot...I made turkeys and butterflies...

what is the dowel rod trick you are talking about? printed off the recipe, but not sure what you meant about the thickness/dowel rod, etc.

I put a dowel rod under each side of my rolling pin and used them as a guide for how thick to roll out the dough....It came out just right....Does that make sense? I rolled my dough out under parchment (it worked fine for me) and when I turned the paper, I just moved the dowels so it was even thickness all around...

So what frosting is good to use on sugar cookies. I want something that will taste good, not like eating royal frosting. Any suggestions?

Well, I can't help you there, I am going to make royal because it is best for decorating...You can add flavoring of your choice if you want a different flavor...

Love the idea, but they come in all different sizes and perhaps I'm a bit anal today. icon_redface.gif

I have used just regular ol class buttercream to decorate them. Decorate, and then let them air dry under paper towels overnight. I have stacked them without a problem. Have also put them in cellophane bags too. taht reminds me, I need to upload the pics icon_redface.gif

I use the dowel rods that come in the package at Michael's...They are probably a little less than a 1/4 inch thick.....I used the rolled chocolate cookie recipe from the kitchengifts.com website..I just finished baking those and they are really good too...I had to test them of course and it took 2...
Will decorate all tomorrow....School and work tonight....

Happy Baking!!

I'm not a royal icing fan so I use Toba Garrett's glace' icing recipe. You can find it online by putting Toba Garrett icing in the search box. I know www.baking911.com has it.

Very tasty stuff, stays glossy and firms nicely thumbs_up.gif

Kos,

Does the Toba Garrett Glace color as well as the royal? I was thinking of using that on my cookies.

Thanks,
Cindy
