I made these and they cut out perfect and baked perfect but they didn't have much taste to them. They had a dry discuit taste to them if that makes any sense at all. I followed the recipe to a tee and I am so disappointed. I did leave the batch in the fridge overnight but I really don't think that is what happened. Has anyone else ever had this happen? The looked great but taste blah.
Welcome to Cake Central. some people do find the taste a bit blah
It helps to add more flavoring-vanilla and almond or lemon are good.
Be sure to add some flavor to your icing. It will help the overall taste.
I found a better consistency of NFSC when I was able to weigh the flour instead of "cupping" the flour. I don't know where I got this figure, but I use 31.7 ounces of flour for one batch of NFSC. I find that the dough dries out too much when it isn't used right after mixing. Maybe one or both caused them to dry out (too much flour, dry dough) and become too biscuity?
Thanks so much for replying. I tried adding lemon to a batch I made and then I added almond to another batch I made and I really liked the almond taste much better. Then after I iced them with my royal icing I thought they were perfect. No I know just to add some almond. Thanks again!
