Anyone use the Penny's (from Texas Monthly) Cookie Recipe?

post #1 of 24

I usually use the NFSC, but came across Penny's recipe. I'm just wondering if anyone has used it and if it's better than NFSC.

Thanks.

I think many people have used Penny's and liked it over the NFSC.. search penny's. you should get alot of results

Yes, thank you - I did look it up and it doesn't have to be chilled. I think I may give it a try.

I use Penny's exclusively and love it.....I do chill the dough however even though the recipe says you don't need to I find it easier to work with.

Could someone please give the recipe for Penneys cookies? Or tell me how to get the search function to work. I am having trouble searching for them. I just can't seem to get it to work. Thanks so much.

I do too and I love it. I have made them both side by side using the same exact amounts of flavoring and everyone who tried them prefered Penny's over the NFSC's. They are wonderful. I cut them out and chill them before I bake. I started doing this when I cut out a bunch and had to wait for the oven space. It works great and they hardly spread at all.

It sounds like I'll have to try it! My husband is wanting a different cookie recipe. He doesn't like NFSC - although everyone else loves them!

Thanks!

I use Penny's with the sour cream and love them. I have a pic posted under my photos.

Thanks so much for the recipe. Does anyone know if its necessary to use unbleached flour or whipping cream. Can all-purpose flour work as well. Can milk be used in place of the cream?

You could used bleached flour if you want. I find that bleached flour gives a slightly different flavor, but it works the same. I would think if it's whole milk it'll be fine.

I tried the Penny's recipe and you guys were right, they are sooo much better. I didn't have unbleached flour, so next time I'll use that.

Thanks for your responses. thumbs_up.gif

Naty -

Quick question - you added sour cream? How much? I didn't see that in the recipe......

I've tried both Penny's recipe and the NFSC recipe... did a blind taste test with over 12 people, iced and plain. Some preferred the NF, some Pennys. There wasn't a clear consensus, and almost half of the testers couldn't' tell the difference (especially with icing).

I go with the NF as my standard recipe, because it is so easy to work with and because it cuts out the expense of some of the ingredients (like the cream).
