All I can say is WOW! I used this recipe for a birthday party this weekend and it received rave reviews!! They were lemon flavored edible image cookies. They were so good that family members were fighting over the cookies! Thanks Tina for sharing your recipe!

Hey Tammie I've been considering trying this one but I've been happy with the original NFSC so I haven't bothered changing yet. Have you tried both to be able to tell me if it's better than the original?

Sorry Tammie, I'm kind of new at this. You were very clear, I just read it the wrong way. Haha. Did you omit the vanilla and use lemon in place of it? Did you use lemon extract for the flavoring? Lemon is my favorite cookie flavor so I'll have to try it. I usually put in a whole bottle of extract when I make a large batch of cookies even if it says a couple of teaspoons. I like a strong flavor in my cookies. icon_biggrin.gif

Glad to hear it worked out for you!

Angela, the main differences between the two are that the modified version gives you more of a chewy softer cookie, vs. the regular NFSC which are crunchier and flakier in texture. They're both sturdy and hold up well for decorating and in cookie bouquets....but the modified are also sweeter than the reg. NFSC. Just a preference in taste and texture...they're both good!

Redsoxbaker, you can use lemon pudding mix, or even lemon jello mix if you want a really strong lemony flavor (you will get a bright yellow color on your dough though) to the modified version

Wish I would have seen this last night. I just made a batch of the reg. NFSC. Adding pudding always makes my cakes moist. I just found a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies that requires pudding. I cant wait to try them out.

I made the modified NFSC for a extra treat for my daughters wedding and made them look her wedding dress. This recipe is fantastic thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif . I think if you try this you will love it, Alice's Icing went on them beautifully and they tasted wonderful.

I'm so glad I came upon this post. I havent tried either recipe yet but after reading this, I am now leaning toward the modified version. Can anyone tell me if the cookies spread while baking? I'm having a terrible time with it! I've been using the Wilton SC recipe for months. The taste is very good, but they do spread a little more than I'd like.
I recently purchased "The Flour Pot" cookie book and tried their SC recipe. They hold the shape beautifully, but fiancee said the Wilton's TASTE better.
Any suggestions?
TIA!
