Hi all you cookie folks,
This is probably a completely dumb question, but I want to try my hand at the No Fail Sugar Cookie recipe, but I don't know what kind of flour to buy, LOL!!! The recipe just says "flour", so what kind is it??? Also, does anyone have a great tasting, yet easy cookie icing for a newbie cookie baker??? Thanks in advance.

That is a good question! I assumed it was all purpose flour since you add in baking powder. But I am probaby wrong. I printed the recipe so that I could make it later and that did not even occur to me. Hope someone else with experience can enlighten us.

I use all-purpose flour. I have used Antonia74 Royal Icing recipe and tara1970 sugar cookie icing and have had great success with both. Hope that helps!

Yes - it's all purpose flour. As for icing, check in the recipes section for "cookie icing." There are several listed. I like Alice's cookie icing. HTH icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the quick responses. I was thinking that it would be all purpose flour since the cookies need to hold a certain shape. Thanks so much and any other responses are still welcome.

here's another cookie newbie question- if you're using rolled buttercream or fondant to decorate, how would you attach it to the cookie??? icon_smile.gif

you can add it while the cookies are still warm and it will "melt" onto the cookie and stick. Or, if the cookies are cooled, you can use a little piping gel or corn syrup to "glue" it onto the cookie.
