I need a "THICK" sugar cookie for cut outs ! HELP

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I have been in search of a the recipe for the thick sugar cookies (cut outs) almost has a shortbread taste - melts in your mouth as you eat them! YUM thumbs_up.gif

I have tried all kinds of recipes for the sugar cookies, and they just dont hold up to the thickness I need - I can cut them out thick (1/2 to 1/4), but baking them they flatten out to blobs!

I have seen and had these cookies, they are amazing.. and I am at my wits end trying to find the recipe -

TIA..... TIA.... TIA... icon_biggrin.gif

if your having issues with your recipe "flattening" out you may want to try freezing them first, then cook them straight from the freezer.

i do this and just add 1-3 minutes on to my regular baking time, depending on the size of cookie.

I was going to suggest NFSC. But you found one already. Can you post the recipe or a link here?

NFSC is a great recipe!! It is the only one that I use. You can alter the taste by adding different flavorings too! YUMMY!!

This is what I use for thick cut outs

Ingredients
6 egg yolks
4 eggs
2 cups butter, softened
2 1/2 cups white sugar
7 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions
1.In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Cover dough and chill for at least one hour.
2.Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. On a floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/2 inch thick and cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place 2 inches apart on to the prepared baking sheets.
3.Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely

I have tried the NSFC and it tastes great but in order for my cookies to hold their shape you have to freeze it.

I use a melt in you mouth shortbread cookie recipe and it comes out perfect every time! No freezing, no eggs and you can add flavorings too! With the shortbread you don't have to worry about your cookies "spreading out" during baking. They hold their shape wonderfully.

Whew.. this is alot hard then I thought !

I made 4 batches of cookie dough and not ONE was right... I mean really ! By the time the fourth one was baking, I was sitting on the floor watching it thru the oven window - praying it would not flatten, praying that it would at least hold up... well, it kinda did - but the taste was so "GOSH AWFUL" the dog did not even want it - and the funny of that, is that it recieved 5 stars and was raved about as for taste - I must have bad taste buds on that one! Yucka !

I think I will try the recipe posted.. but also, I believe that its more on the shortbread recipe that lets it hold its shape in the oven (also freezing helps ALOT) so I found some of those -

Back to the kitchen I go...

Sure! Here it is:

1 1/4 c. powdered sugar

4 c. flour

2 tsp. cornstarch

4 cubes butter (room temp)

1 tsp. good vanilla ( I use Madagascar )

Stir together flour, powder sugar and cornstarch. Add in butter and vanilla. You want the dough to be the constancy of play dough. Roll out dough, cut into shapes and bake at 350 for 8 to 10 mins. Just until cookies are slightly golden brown.

According to a few sites, it looks like a cube is 1/2 cup, so her recipe is calling for 2 cups of better

1 cube = 1/2 C, or 8 tablespoons, or 4 oz, or a quarter pound, or 1 stick

That's weird. When I googled for a cube of butter, the answer was 2 ounces, or half a stick, which would result in a "cube" shape. Wonder which it is. Hmmmm.....
