I have made the packaged Betty Crocker suagr cookies and the NFSC and I always like the packaged cookie the best. It has a sweeter butterier taste.

Does anyone know what I can do to enhance this in the NFSC or do you have a recipe thats good for decorting and tastes just as great at the BC mix?

Cristy, have you tried the cookie decorated? The RI or TG adds so much sweetness, I prefer a less sweet cookie. I know a lot of people like a buttery cookie, I'm just not a fan. I know some CCers will have lots of great recipes for you

I'm with Shiney-I find the royal soooo sweet that having a less sweet cookie is a nice counterpart to it.

I use penny's recipe for sugar cookies (basically the same thing as NFSC) and instead of almond extract I use butter flavoring. It tastes just like a butter cookie. If you are making a sugar cookie to eat plain those recipes aren't very exciting. I have a good sugar cookie recipe, I will look for it and post it for you.

8 cups flour (plus some to work with)
2 eggs
2 C. sugar
2 C. cream
2/3 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
2 C. Crisco
2 tsp vanilla (or to taste)

Pre-heat oven to 350 D. In a bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside. In a mixer, mix the sugar and Crisco together until fluffy (5-10 minutes) Add eggs, cream and vanilla, mix until combined. Add the flour to the mixer about 2 cups at a time. Take the dough out and knead it till it comes together. You can roll it out and use cookie cutters or roll it into balls and flatten them a little. Bake for 8-12 minutes (depends on how you like them). This makes a lot of cookies (3-4 dz) icon_eek.gif and can easily be halved. They don't spread very much.

Thanks so much for your replies. I usually cover my cookies in fondant and some RI.

But I loved the Betty Crocker ones so much! I will definitely be trying these new recipes!!!

Thanks again!
