I have been searching & trying recipes same as everyone trying to find one that is better than NF. I've tried, Toba's, Karen's, Melissa's, Martha's,
Wilton's etc and the NF, altho I wish I could tweak it & make it better is still my fav for cut outs. I like it best with half lemon & half vanilla fl.

I use the recipe from Publix Apron's Simple Meals' Sugar Cookies. I didn't have any problem with it except with the baking time - I bake no more than 10 minutes to prevent browning and hard. It holds shape well and taste good. The dough holds its' shape and won't spread during baking. Make sure you let your oven preheat for at least 1/2 hour before baking these.

Publix Sugar Cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 egg
2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine flour, baking powder and salt, mixing well. Combine sugar and butter in large bowl, with electric mixer on high speed, until well mixed. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Add four mixture, mix well.

Chill 2 hours until firm.

Preheat oven to 350*. Use your favorite cookie cutter to shape chilled dough and place on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake up to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely before decorate. Makes 4 dozen.


Some people like crispy cookie, but I prefer chewy cookie so I bake no more than 7 minutes. I like my cookie without any golden brown. Instead of placing the cookies on lightly, greased baking sheet, I use Silpat (silicone non-stick removable baking sheet) and I never had any browning on the cookie's bottom.

Thanks for the recipe. If it's Publix, it has to be good. Now, if we could just steal their buttercream recipe! icon_twisted.gif

Kos - LOL! I, too, used to have a crush on Jack Wild. On the sad note, he passed away this March 6th from oral/throat cancer. He was 52 years old. God bless him.

Here is a cream cheese cookie recipe that I have used many times - It is pretty easy to work with and everyone has really liked it.

1 cup of butter or margarine
1 8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. In a mixing bowl, beat butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium to high speed abuot 30 seconds or until softened. Add about half of the flour, the sugar, egg, baking powder, and vanilla to the butter mixture. Beat until thoroughly combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Then beat or stir in the remaining flour.

2. Cover and chill for 3 to 24 hours or until easy to handle. On a lightly floured surface roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into shapes.

3. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are firm and bottoms are lightly browned. Carefully removed cookies and cool on wire rack. Makes about 36 cookies.

They don't taste bad but a slight bit of crunch would be better. 

This difference is from your icing NOT your cookie.

 

To keep your cookies crisp under whatever icing, paint the cooled baked cookies with a thin layer of candy melts.  Then decorate with royal or any other icing.

 

And as a general comment--I have switched from roll-out cookie recipes to refrigerator cookie recipes.  Once the dough has chilled overnight, it can be rolled just fine.

 

I use lime oil with a bit of almond, or rum extract with the vanilla and a touch of nutmeg. MUCH less boring...
