Could someone refer me to a recipe for cookie and the icing...I do cakes not cookies and my daughter wants some to give as favors at her baby shower. I would appreciate it greatly!
My suggestion would be the no fail sugar cookies from this website. There is a tutorial on doing the cookies and the icing, which are both fabulous, also on this site. You wont' be disappointed
Here is the link:
Like I said, you will not be disappointed!
I did cookies as favors for my baby shower. The guests loved it!
I used the No Fail Sugar Cookie (NFSC) recipe off of this site. I add extra flavorings though: 1tsp. vanilla, 1 tsp. almond extract, and 1 tsp. of orange extract.
Then I used royal icing flavored with those same extracts. As most will tell you, the NFSC recipe is great because it keeps it shape when baked and doesn't spread out into a blob in the oven.
Then I bundled them up into little gift bags and attached a note to each one, then tied with a ribbon. Here are 2 links to my cookies and favors that are on my website:
Hope this helps.
I use the NFSC cookie recipe right here on CC. Its great. I used that for the cookies I have in my photos. I just cover them with Michele Foster's Fondant. I will include the links. Just put the fondant on the cookies while they are still warm, melts right onto the cookies. I used corn syrup the first time and was too messy for me.
They came out so cute!! I think im going to try that recipe. I have to make some engagement party cookies in August. I may also try that fondant method, I ususally use RI its its can get messy..I tried cookie glaze (corn syrup method) and it was just waaayyy to messy, sticky, and the color was a litle off for me..the white looked yellow..
Truthfully, I now prefer the fondant method of "icing" the cookies - looks so much more neater and can than use royal icing for the details.
I make the NFSC and use Rhonda's Ultimate MMF all the time. I usually bake the cookies one day and decorate them the next. The trick to using corn syrup is to thin it. It is too heavy straight out of the bottle. I use a half inch sable brush to brush it on. It adheres very well.
