Hi! Lately I've been trying something new with my sugar cookies. Instead of refrigerating the dough in a ball before rolling it out, I roll it out between two pieces of parchment paper, put it on a cookie sheet, and then refrigerate it and cut it out. That way the cookies are already on the parchment and I don't have to move them and possibly mess up the shape. The only problem is, the extra dough is sticking to the parchment paper and I have a hard time getting it off without messing up the cut outs. It kind of defeats the purpose!
Here's the recipe I use... 1 c butter, 1 c sugar, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 egg, 1 egg yolk, 2 tsp vanilla, 2 1/2 c flour. Do you think I need more flour? I don't care for dry sugar cookies, so I've resisted adding more, but with the dough sticking to the paper, I'm about ready to try it!
Any tips? Thanks! Maria
I do the same thing, roll between two sheets. I stick mines in the freezer for 15-30 min then pop the cut outs out and place them on a baking sheet lined with a silpat mat. Hope that helps.
thanks, it does help! I'll try the freezer thing for sure!
