AI have tried several different cookie recipes and they have all been too hard or wouldn't hold their shape (spreading too much) or tasted bland.
Does anyone have a good recipe for cookies? I see these beautifully decorated cookies everywhere but again for the most part they are just rock hard. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
AI use sweetopia's recipe.. Check out the website.
I like this recipe: http://www.annies-eats.com/2010/04/02/sugar-cookies-revisited/
The key for me was not rolling the dough out too thin. Keep the cookies nice and thick, and they will stay soft for days.
I use the no fail sugar cookies recipe from this site. They are soft but do not spread. Personally I would prefer something with a bit of crunch. They are a bit bland but I add flavouring to my royal icing to help liven them up.
