Made NFSC fish today for a red fish/blue fish Seuss theme. This is my first time making them and not sure I did it right. I pulled them out of the oven as I began to see the faintest hint of light brown on the edge of the cookie. I tried one after it cooled and it seemed hard on the outside and just a bit soft on the inside. Is that right? I need to ice these with royal icing and am afraid to leave them out all night to dry. Will they get too hard? Or, is that just kind of expected for an iced cookie like that? Thanks for your help!
Looks like you did it right. It should be harder on top, but soft inside. When I glazed my cookies, I left them out all day, no problem. Not to worry.
Yes - sounds right. If rolled out by the directions it has a bit of a snap when you bite it but is soft, however, if you roll it out thicker then it is a soft cookie. I've done both (mostly by accident). Keep up the good work!
Whew! (Sigh of relief.) Thanks for your help. I'll just keep truckin' on then. Thanks!
