Penny McConnell's sugar cookies published on the web? I swear, I've pulled up at least 4 different recipes! They all say they're straight from her, but each one is a little different (usually in the almond extract measurement).
I've been using the Texas Monthly version (which, I believe is posted on this site) and everyone loves it, but Im having a huge problem with it sticking It even sticks to the d--n parchment paper Im rolling it out on!!
Am I doing something wrong? How can I fix this?!?! I roll between two sheets of parchment paper, and no matter what I do (even popping it in the freezer to harden for a few minutes) I cant stop the paper from sticking! (tried switching paper brands, too) I HATE not having a perfectly smooth surface, but I love the flavor of the cookies, so I really want it to work for me
I didn't know there were different versions of her recipe out there. That's one of the things I don't like about people posting other people's recipes. They don't always get it right and Penny (or whomever) will be blamed.
I have the one she handed out at her class. She said to add more flour if you need to. If your dough is sticky, knead in flour a little at a time until it's easier to work with. It's a very forgiving recipe.
Who is Penny McConnell? I've never heard of her.
Penny McConnell is a really sweet lady from Texas who owns a cookie business called Penny's Pastries and teaches classes. Her company did cookies for local businesses in Austin and all of the Starbucks in Texas as well as for an airline (Southwest, I think) to name just two of the big companies -- she no longer does this, she said it wasn't fun anymore. She gives seminars and taught at ICES conventions, too. She was also featured on Food Network's series "Best Of..." Her book is called Cookie Stories.:
Her company just started producing gourmet cookie mixes.
Wow! Thanks!! I don't know how I missed that one! Now I'm curious as to this recipe y'all are talking about...
Is there any way that you can post the recipe on here? Thank you!
Here's the link to the one in the recipe section: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-3993-Pennys-cookies.html
It's the same version that I've been using, but like I said, there are about 5 different versions floating around. I've had nothing but complements on the flavor of these cookies! With Toba's glace, they're really delicious!
Honeydukes................... What does your recipe call for? I use the one from Texas monthly and I was wondering if yours was different.
