I use NFSC. What makes them come out of the oven all wrinkly looking?

I am not sure on the reason, but I know the last time I made cut outs, the first batch came out like that, and after that they were fine... I thought maybe I did not bake them quite long enough. The rest were not overcooked, but maybe that half a minute or so longer smoothed them out? Anyone else have ideas why?

I went longer with the 2nd batch but they came out the same.

weird! I know my first batch was shriveled looking but the rest, perfect.
I did try to decorate them with RI and fondant, but the edges you could still tell were 'funny', so I did not use them.

It should be interesting to see if anyone replies with the answer!

I had this happen one day and I finally came to the conclusin it was because of the humidity. I was running my dryer at the same time and it makes it very humid in my house. The next time I was sure not to do that and they were fine.

If your oven isn't heated all the way, it will affect the way your cookies bake, by cooking the edges and not the inside, leaving a wrinkled top. Usually when the second batch goes in, the oven is at the correct temperature, and that's why subsequent batches come out better.

I find this dough to be very dry and it is wrinkly when i try to roll it out as well so for me it's not about the baking.

I ice mine on the backside so wrinkles wouldn't really be an issue. The backside is always flat and smooth! thumbs_up.gif
