Hi there all!
Have any of you tried to add cinnamon to the NFSC? I am doing a bridal shower and the bride wants a cinnamon sugar cookie. Just wondering if you have added stuff to it and how it works. Thanks guys!!
So I tried the cinnamon in the NFSC and it is WONDERFUL, just a hint to anyone who who might want to try it!!!!
So how much cinnamon did you add? I'm going to try this one day!
Sorry for the late response, but I have used cinnamon in mine since I began making them a few months ago. I just use the bottle that you can "shake" the cinnamon out of and use a couple dashes. Everyone loves it when I make these cookies. I had read this idea on CC somewhere after I made my first regular batch of NFSC and liked it better than the plain ones.
I've been meaning to try this...thanks for posting! Has anyone ever added cinnamon extract to NFSC instead of the "powdered" cinnamon? Just wondering if there's a difference in flavor or how much you used.
I never make NFSC without cinnamon and one other secret ingredient, I find it to be to blah without it.
Everyone has always loved the taste! I use 1tbsp to 6 cups of flour
I used 1tbsp to a half batch of them, I was experimenting for a bride who wants a cinnamon sugar type cookie. Yummy!
Thanks to the replies here..the next batch of NFSC will have cinnamon.
Here's a recipe I thought I'd share:
CHAI SUGAR COOKIES
* 1 1/2 cups margarine or butter, softened
* 2.5 cups white sugar
* 4 eggs
* 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 5 cups all-purpose flour
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 4 tsp chai spice mixture* (prepackaged or see below)
* (Optional additions I like: Sometimes I add Â½ of the zest from a lemon. It is just divine.
In a nice large bowl, cream together the sugar and the butter until really smooth. Next, beat in the eggs and the vanilla. Mix the chai spices with the flour baking powder and salt, then add that to the large bowl of wet ingredients. I like to chill this overnight or at least a couple hours.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to Â¼ to Â½ an inch thick. Cut into pretty shapes with cookie cutters or into circles with a cup. Place them on ungreased cookie sheets and bake 6-8 minutes. Cool before frosting or decorating!
*Chai spice mix â Mix two teaspoons each of ground cloves, cinnamon, and ground cardamom and then add one teaspoon of white pepper and blend well.
