GinnyKay: when you rolled the dough 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick, do they stay pretty much the same thickness after baking?

TIA

Mine do, with little spreading.

Thank you bobwonderbuns, I saw this wooden board at Joann's today that I want to use to roll out cookie dough but thought maybe it was too deep. I think I will buy it and give it a try and see if I can get the dough to roll even.

I use the smart rolling pin and have no problems at all. I use the smallest wheel on it and we're good to go! icon_biggrin.gif

Oh, you made my day with this recipe!!! icon_biggrin.gif
I had tried several recipes for cutout biscuits, including the one on youtube from misstruly, but they were all a total failure to me (maybe one reason is that I have to convert all measuring in metric) as they all spread so much that they became nearly a single cake when baked icon_lol.gif
I will try this recipe asap, thank you so much!!! thumbs_up.gif

GinnyKay -

Just tried your rolled cookie recipe and it's unanimous - everyone loves it! They taste delicious and don't go flat.

I'm going to be using this recipe for my daughter's mini wedding cake favors (200 of them at 3 cookies each!). Thanks for doing the testing.

I know that a couple of you have said that GinnyKay's recipe doesn't spread...so I guess I'm just triple checking! Even with 2 tsp baking powder, the shapes stay nice and crisp? I used a recipe last week that had 1 1/2 tsp and they puffed enough that corners were round, rather than pointy, if that makes sense. With NFSC, I left out the baking powder and they didn't spread/puff...but I was looking for something with a better flavor.

I tried this one yesterday. It has not been baked yet. I left it in the fridge 5 hrs but it was so sticky it was unspreadable even putting it between 2 sheets of parchment paper.....I had to add LOTS of flour and put it back in the fridge. I was afraid I had messed up with the measurements as I have to convert to metric, but I checked and conversions are right. Consistency when I pulled it out of the fridge was very very soft and sticky. when i put it on the paper it just glued to it........I don't know why icon_cry.gif

Is there a difference in the moisture content of butter between Italy and the US? I've done some baking in the Virgin Islands and found that the butter available there makes a difference. I started carrying butter flavor Crisco down with me so I could bake cookies that wouldn't spread to cover the pan.

This is a thing I really dunno..............anyway I made the cookies today with the batch I prepared yesterday and to which I added the flour.
The result is: the cookies are lovely, not too sweet and more to the crunchy side; they held shape wonderfully, I also made some very tiny ones. Tomorrow decorate them! So For me it's ok with let's say 200 grams more four. If I find out how to post a pic here I'll do when they are done!

I just made about 100 cookies with NFSC recipe and thought it was great. I kept the dough slightly chilled and popped them into the oven also slightly chilled. Toba Garrett glace and my airbrush finished them up. So fun. I added some orange extract & orange zest to the cookies..yum!
