I misplaced a recipe that I really liked and it was simply called Alans Sugar Cookie recipe. It was very simple with just a small amount of baking powder or soda in it. For the life of me, I don't remember where I found it, but I was so sure it was from the GSA Alan. If is was from you, Alan, would you mind repeating it here.
Thanks so much.

Thanks so much for the answer and yes that is the recipe. I don't think it would work too well for cookie bouquets as it was a tad crumbly for me, but it really tasted good. I like it for the little 8 loop flower cutter as it wants to dome a little in the center, so when the fondant goes on top it looks really nice. I fill in each loop with a brightly colored chocolate covered sunflower seed and they really were cute.
Thanks again and that cake in your avatar is stunning.

About how many cookies can you get from this recipe ?

Fiddle, I used a 2" cutter and I think it was about 30 or so. This is a little wetter dough and I think it would benefit from being rolled on a floured board rather than on parchment like I do the NFSC. I really do like the taste so see what you think.

Forgot to mention that this dough held it's shape like a dream for me whether it was chilled or baked at room temperature. Thanks Alan.
