I made a batch of the NFSC cookies refrigerated over night. I did everything I was supposed to do but after I baked them I noticed that most of them had like an air pocket or bump in them. What did I do wrong or what can I do to avoid this from happening again since I have to decorate them & give them out as gifts?

I believe that happens if you get too much air in the dough.

If you see the bubble, take a pin and pop it. Then carefully smooth the dough or cookie. You can cover most of it up.

I agree it little air pockets. I found that when I make them if I slap the dough around before you chill iticon_biggrin.gif Really it seems to help with the air bubbles so just pop them with a pin when they come out of the oven and they will be fine!

I don't beat my dough in the mixer for so long. I incorporate about 2/3 of the flour with the mixer and then add the rest by hand. I also find that if you roll with a lighter touch, that helps the bubbles. If I do end up with some bubbles, I use a paper towel to smooth over the cookies as soon as I take them out of the oven.
