Has anyone ever used the creme bouquet flavoring in your cookies? I usually use vanilla or maybe a little almond if I'm feeling daring but last night I used the creme bouquet flavoring for my no fail cookies. I don't know why I even purchased the bottle of this flavoring other than to say that the description sounded kind of yummy. I have not actually eaten one of my cookies yet - partly because they smell so GROSS but partly because I have almost the exact amount of cookies I need for my order so I don't want to chance not having enough. Please someone tell me that the flavor is not as disgusting as the smell!!! I added 2 teaspoons to a single recipe (since the recipe calls for 2 tsps vanilla). The smell is overpowering. My husband thought it smells like microwave popcorn. I would hate to give away these cookies (it's my 1st order with this customer) and have them taste like crap. And to make matters worse, I had so little notice to do these cookies that I used fondant for the background (I am using royal tonight for the writing on top - they will dry quickly that way). I used Satin Ice fondant which isn't bad as far as fondant goes but I personally wouldn't eat it. Now my cookies do look beautiful so far mind you but who cares if they taste disgusting. The shape is a scroll and it's for a teenage girls graduation party.
