I just tried the White Velvet recipe this morning. My dough was quite sticky. There's no way I could have rolled & cut them without being in the frig. I have started spooning my flour in the measuring cup instead of scooping it out with the measuring cup itself. Do you think I don't have enough flour in the dough? I haven't rolled them out yet, they're still in the frig.
Yes, you have to refrigerate them for at least the 2 hours the recipe calls for, I actually usually let it sit overnight. It will also get VERY soft on you after cutting and re-rolling the leftover dough once or twice. I usually roll twice (to cut out shapes) and then put the leftover in another bowl and start with a new chilled piece. It may be a little trouble, but these cookies are sooooo good! They are now my favorite!
So you can use the Cream Cheese recipe for making cookie bouquets? I made them thursday for a birthday. and they kept fallin goff the stick. How thick do you roll out the cookie? and how deep do yo uinsert the stick? i only put it in about 1/2 inch. but I know my cookie was not too thick.
