Hi, I'm sorry for the ignorance but I can barely understand all the NFCS and MMF and everything
Could someone be so kind to explain it to me and if you can share the recipe I would really appreciate it
Is this cookie better than the sugar one, does it hold the shape better
Thank you for your help!!
Definitely can get confusing!! NFSC stands for No Fail Sugar Cookie. It holds shapes very well. Several bakers recommend you chill the dough after cutting/ before baking. I don't know what sugar recipe you're talking about so, sorry, can't offer a comparison. HTH!
No Fail Sugar Cookie.

Hollycow Honeydukes. I am a complete newby to cookies. I decorate cakes and have never gotten into cookies before. Don't know the first thing about making them.
I have an order for 75 cookies for middle of February for a baby shower. She can afford to pay $100. After searching this site, i found this weaalth of info you have posted.
thank you, thank you, thank you!
I think $100 for 75 cookies is a bit too low. I told her i would let her know tomorrow if i'm willing to take her order.
you have summed up my research in one post.
malishka - Are you talking about royal icing decorated cookies? Have you done them before at all? I decided for a party awhile ago that I would "save time" and make cookies for a party instead of a cake. Yeah right! Save time! Those buggers took me absolutely forever! I do not envy you making 75 of them! I don't sell my goodies, but I wouldn't think that $100 would be worth the time. And by the way...your cakes are gorgeous!
Another by the way - if you guys want cookie inspiration here are a couple of CC members' cookies that you have to check out...

There are plenty of others, but when I think of gorgeous cookies, these are the ones that I go to!!
thank you for the compliment KrissieCakes.
I told the girl that I would have to think about it. She knows i don't do cookies, but decided to give me the business before she went to anyone else. She has ordered cake from me before and knows my work. But as I look at the sugar cookies, looks too time consuming to me.
I royal iced a couple of butterflies for one of my cakes, and the fun wore off after my 3rd butterfly. it took me forever. I don't know if i want to put in so much time for $100 bucks.
I know exactly what you mean. I made just 2 batches of cookies for a Halloween party and it got old pretty quick. I don't think I have the patience for the minute detail involved in making really pretty cookies. They looked cute, but I definitely wouldn't call them pretty. The worst part was that it took me longer than a small cake would have and my kitchen was an absolute disaster from all of the different icing colors I used! Good luck if you decide to take the order!
I think i've already decided.
