Does anyone adjust the amount of baking powder in NFSC? Mine seem to get too puffy with 3 tsp. of baking powder and I wondered if I could cut back on it without hurting the quality of the cookies.
My recipe is very similar to the NFSC. I use 2 teaspoons of baking powder not 3. You can omit the BP completely -- it will make a (slightly) denser cookie.
I don't really make NFSC but I make one that's very similar. I don't use any baking powder or soda and they come out perfectly level and keep their initial height. My guess is you could easily cut back.
Thanks for the help. I am going to cut back to 2 and see what happens.
I also use 2 and its perfect.
me too. I cut the amount of BP in half.
I was finding that with 3 tsp, my cookies were also puffing up way too much lately. So, I cut it in half to 1 1/2 tsp and it works great and my taste tester (DH) didn't notice any difference.
