I like the NFSC now that i figured out to add the flour slowly until the right consistency is reached.

I love Penny's. I just use regular milk instead of the cream in mine..... (mainly because I don't keep it on hand, and am usually baking at 11 pm LOL)

Thanks. Yes I am looking for a recipe for cut out cookies. I usually use Martha Stewart's recipe. And her royal icing recipe. I appreciate the feedback.

i like peggy porschens.
i think more than the recipe, it is the technique that will make a difference - ie: chilling the dough properly, right oven temp, not over mixing etc - theres lots of tips on this site.

I usually make buttercream and have only made royal icing a few times. Can it sit out with a damp cloth over it or should I put it in the refrigerator while I wait for cookies to cool?

I keep my RI in airtight containers - like tupperware or gladware. IT will keep that way for a few days with only a little re-mixing needed.

If I remember correctly, the Martha Stewart cut-out cookie recipe is very similar to the No-fail recipe....

psneed uses a recipe from All Recipes.com. Well that's what it says on her blog anyway. It has sour cream in it. I recently tried it but changed the procedure a bit. I always roll and cut then refrigerate and bake. The finished product was nice and moist and still held its form well. I probably would not use it for a cookie on a stick, as it would be too soft, but otherwise really delicious thumbs_up.gif
