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.
i've used regular all purpose-unbleached flour and they were delicious!
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
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???
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.
