Could you share the recipe? I also prefer soft, chewy cookies to crispy crunchy ones.

TIA!

I'll be happy to share the recipe. I think it's somewhat similar to the NFSC recipe, but I've never taken the time to compare them side by side.

Best Sugar Cookies

2 c. butter
2 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. lemon extract (or any other flavor you prefer)
1 tsp. salt
6 c. flour

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy; add eggs and extract and mix thoroughly. Add salt and just enough of the flour to give you a firm but not dry dough (I use between 5 and 5-1/2 cups). Chill dough about an hour. Roll out on floured board to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut with cookie cutters. Transfer to baking sheets that have been greased or covered with parchment paper. Bake app. 8-10 minutes or until cookies just start to turn a golden brown color. Once cookies have been cooled they can be decorated with your favorite icing.

You'll notice the omission of baking powder or soda. Because there's no leavener, the cookies don't puff up and get distorted.

I think that pretty much IS the NFSC without the baking powder!

Happy New Year to you too! Thanks for the recipe as well. I never had luck with the NFSC (too dry), but i'll try this recipe again.

When I make NFSC I decrease the flour to 5 3/4c.
If it's too dry you can add a couple of tbsp of water.
Some ccer's add dry pudding mix to the dough and gwt a moister cookie.

Hi tiffany, still waiting on getting the shortening to try your ccc recipe. I was planning on going today but the snow out here was pretty bad this morning.

The last time i made the NFSC, i tried adding a bit of water to the dry crumbly dough and it was really gross. The dry pudding mix is definately something to try.

I think if you add all 6 cups in the recipe I use it would be too dry. I stop at about 5 cups and check the dough. If it feels a little gooey I add a little more, but I go slow as you can always add more but you can't take any out.
