HI KHalstead! My neighbors will never eat another sugar cookie after I baked your sugar cookies with the cheesecake pudding in them for a football game this past weekend. Raven's lost (Baltimore, Maryland), but the decorated sugar cookies won! LOL I do have a question though & that is, to color your cookie dough, how much jello do you use in the recipe? (Cherry jello for red dough to make hearts for Valentine's Day)

Thanks much,

To make sure a particular CC-er sees a message, it is better to PM them than to make a post in a forum. icon_biggrin.gif

I omit ALL of the baking powder with no change in texture or flavor

Here is my revamped NFSC

The result is a cookie that is crisp to the touch and sturdy, yet soft and chewy when you bite into it

3 cups of sugar
2 sticks of butter
1 cup of shortening

Mix these very well until light in color and fluffy

3 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond extract (optional)

Mix to incorporate

Mix in separate bowl:
1-4oz. box of instant pudding (any flavor you choose)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt (if you use salted butter, leave out the salt)

Add this to the butter mixture and blend well.
Then continue to add up to 4 cups more of flour until the dough forms a ball.

It will still seem soft and might seem a bit sticky, let it rest for 5 minutes, the pudding will firm it up.

I roll it out immediately between 2 sheets of wax paper. They are almost exactlly the same size when they're done baking that they are when they go in the oven.

I remove them after about 7 or 8 minutes (for a 3-4" cookie) just when the tops aren't shiny anymore and there is just the slightest bit of coloring around the edges. Remove and let cool for 10 min. on the cookie sheet (don't move or they'll break apart)
