The NFSC recipe is on this site. Go to recipes and search for No Fail Sugar Cookie.
The No Fail Sugar Cookie (NFSC) recipe is a really good one. I usually add both vanilla and almond flavoring, but you could also add lemon. Sugarbelle has a great blog with some other flavors that you might want to try.
Oh, and make sure the liquid is hot when you begin mixing. That will help make sure everything blends together well.
It took awhile before I got the recipe perfect. I found that by keeping the mixer on a low speed for the entire time I got rid of the air bubbles. I also added a bit more liquid and it was smooth and creamy. I used the measurements for the 6 qt. I usually beat the shortening first until it's creamy and then add the liquids.

I made my fondant cupcake toppers a week or two in advance and keep them in a covered container. Then I put them on the iced cupcake. I find that while they get "firm", you can easily bite...
start now - the fondant and chocolate will keep everything fresh!
