Okay I have made the NFSC before and every one loves them. I want to make chocolate ones....is there a recipe for that using the same NFSC base?

Thanks!

This is an easy and great tasting recipe from Cookie Craft by Valerie Peterson and Janice Fryer.

there's also a great recipe on the website that the NFSC recipe originally came from - I think it's kitchengifts.com

The recipe posted by Honeydukes is great tasting. I'm not a big chocolate fan but I actually loved these. Theu are easy to make and the expresso gives such a rich taste to the cookie; so rich it made me think of a great tasting brownie. One word of caution, I had a difficult time finding the expresso, but they are worth the hunt.

BB, I'm not sure that it matters to anyone, but the recipe isn't actually theirs. It came from a woman named Susan who offered it when someone asked for a non-spreading sugar cookie. It was in the newsletter years ago when they used to put them out regularly. I think, but I'm not certain, that it is the same Susan from Rolling Pin.


Medaglia d'oro is a popular brand of instant espresso powder. You'll find it with the coffee. It's a tiny little jar with a green lid.

You can also order it from King Arthur Flour.

Interesting... I didn't know that. It's also almost exactly the same as a Martha Stewart rolled cookie recipe, too.

She specifically called her recipe a "no fail" recipe and I think Lesley then titled the recipe in the newsletter a No Fail Sugar Cookie. I'll have to pull that folder out and look for it. Toba's is basically the same, too but with less BP.

Recipes are all so very similar -- that's why you can't copyright a list of ingredients. You can only copyright a set of specific instructions. It's why everyone comes up with unique ways to say "Cream the butter and sugar." icon_lol.gif

It bugs me that Kitchen Collectables doesn't give credit for many of the recipes. The Mocha cut-outs for example are from a BHG Christmas magazine -- they are fabulous if you haven't tried them.

There was a discussion about cutters and someone (can't think of her name) "won" their cutter contest with her fast food fries design. She got a free cutter. The problem was she submitted several drawings -- they used them all and continue to sell them, but they refused to give her any credit or free cutters of her other designs. They make beautiful and unique cutters (I own a bunch) but IMO they don't seem to be nice people.

I am so sorry to hear that. Credit should go where credit is due for recipes or designs. That is just wrong. I understand that she submitted them, but credit should be given to the designer (or at least a free cutter of her design.) Goodness, how much are they going to make off of her? That is just a shame. I saw the french fries design and it is really cute. If had they had treated her better, she likely would have submitted even more great designs.
