Sugar cookies to be exact. I'm thinking I might stick with cakes though, lol.

The first batch can out WAY burnt...like smoking stove burnt.

The second batch came out half burnt, but not edible.

The third batch came out really good actually but I dunno.

I think I need a bigger rolling pin. Trying to roll heavy cookie dough with a tiny fondant rolling pin....makes you want to beat someone with the roller. icon_smile.gif

Any cool cookie tips?

If you don't have a big rolling pin and you don't want to spend the money roll out smaller batches of dough!

When I make my susgar cookies, I bake until the center is just firm...don't want to wait until they are brown. Hope that helps...don't give up!

There is nothing like a baby getting mad when your hands are all greasy and your in the middle of making something!

I should try that. Next time I make them, I will cook until just firm. How long do you general cook them?

I go straight from cut out shapes in freezer to the oven, and then bake until tiny cracks appear - never until browning. My oven is so tempermental I just watch them. Like Bronwyn said - after a few batches you can see the middle firming up.

HTH! icon_smile.gif

I bake mine until just turning golden around the edges and they look dry on top.
