The recipe I use is very similar to NFSC (has the same amt of butter and flour). Once, I used XL or Jumbo eggs (I can't recall which ones...I just know that they weren't large) and the cookies came out softer. The only thing is when I flooded with RI they became a little too soft and the cookies broke very easily icon_sad.gif . They weren't as sturdy. I think they would be ok if all you wanted to do is outline them.

I change the flavor of NFSC all the time. I just sub a different flavor out in place of the vanilla or almond extract. I have made bubble gum, pina colada, orange, strawberry, raspberry, etc. I either use LorAnn or Amoretti to switch out. It doesn't change the consistancy just the flavor.

The almond is also delicious but I get very nervous about nut allergies

i flavor all the time using oils or extracts.
the exception is lemon which i use zest to infuse the sugar before using.

the one thing i would add, is that lime zest (not lemon, just lime) tends to turn brown when baking and can ge kinda unnattractive in sugar cookies. i love lime so i am always playing with lime cookies or icing.
if you zest your limes, keep the zest a little larger than you normally would. you can just stick the zest in your sugar the night before, then sift out the zest with a strainer and still get the lime taste without the brown bits in your cookies. i don't remove the lemon zest when i infuse my sugar, but i do with the lime.

I roll my NFSC to about 1/2" thick and they bake anywhere from 8-10 minutes. Set the timer for 4 minutes and then turn them and then the other side for 4 minutes. By the time I get to the oven its been another minute or 2. They turn out perfect everytime! You can't move them immediately, but by the timer goes off to turn the next batch the 1st batch has cooled off enough to move to the cooling rack.

did you need to reduce the flour any?

thanks

I love emulsions, I use tons of almond emulsion in everything including NFSC.Doesn't evaporate in the oven like extracts do since they have no alcohol in them. Thus they are a stronger flavor

Somehow they do soften in storage, and especially once RI or glace is put on (i guess it absorbs some of the moisture from the icing).
Maybe they need to come out of the oven sooner?



exactly.
