I had no idea that letting it sit out overnight will get rid of the greasiness. I guess the box absorbs some of the grease? Thanks for sharing! thumbs_up.gif

I do alot of cookie bouquets and use a rolled sugar cookie recipe that is soft and delicious, but holds up really well. I also use a good crusting BC and let it sit out for an hour after decorating to "crust up".
I then put them in a plastic "goodie" bag and tie them with a ribbon. It seals the cookies in and I can actully make them up to a week before and they don't dry out.
I use cookie sticks for larger cookies and candy sticks for smaller flowers like tulips. I have used skewrs before as well and they work great for tulips, although I would not recomend them for larger flowers.
I put the stick in before I cook them. I dip the sticks in water, it helps the dough stick to them, and I press them inot the dough and then p ll dough from along side the sticks to cover it. then I flip them over so "the back side" is on the cookie sheet and bake.
If you want the recipes, let me know.
HTH, goodl uck!

Thanks y'all for the info! Melchas, I would love the recipes! For this batch I have already made NFSC dough but would love another recipe that is bouquet friendly...as well as the buttercream that dries to where it doesn't come off on the bag. Thanks in advance for sharing!

Hi!! While not as experienced as anyone here, i bake my cookies and then use RI to cover them. Let them sit overnight and then decorate them if need be. Once they have dried, i bag them and attach the stick to the back of the bag (shiny's advice). I don't have much luck baking the sticks in the cookies because i do not like the valley that forms around the stick as it bakes. Some people here have inserted sticks into cookies that just came out of the oven. Havent tried that.
I made RBC once. It was so easy to make and rolled out beautifully. But, it was really greasy on the cookies and didn't look too appetizing.
NewatDecorating, does the grease really go away after the cookies sit a bit? I just didn't let them get that far cuz i assumed that's how they'd look. RBC is definately easier to work with than MMF and bought fondant.

Hello, I make the NFSC with MMF all the time and add some Lorann's Butter flavoring to my MMF, people really like it alot. Sometimes I go ahead and put the cut out of the MMF on the cookie right after removing them from the oven, but if I don't get to it that quick I just attatch the MMF to the cookie with a little bit of water, works everytime. Hope that helps!

Luv2bake - everyone's posts are doubling and tripling. Something is wrong with the system right now. No worries!
