Im a newbie I baked my first batch of cookies sunday after cool completely I put my cookies on an airtight bowl.
Monday around 7:30 pm I flood my cookies with RI, let the cookies on a tray over my table to dry , I did not close the tray with anything.
Tuesday around 7:00 I did the details , at that point I touch my cookie and was already soft I finish my details and let the cookie again over the tray over my table
Wednesday (yesterday) I pack my cookies completely completely soft
I used Karens Sugar cookies recipe and Antonia RI, the cookies are delicious and the RI is perfect .
Why my cookies are so soft? What I did wrong? Im frustrated I bake cakes since 7 years now and I cant make a decorated cookie.
I appreciate your help, I have an order of cookies for the 22nd this month and I need to make a good work.
Putting cookies in a tupperware like bowl can make them soft. I put mine in a tin or just cover with wax paper until they are decorated. Hope that helps!
After mine come out of the oven they cool on a wire cake rack. I leave them on the rack and just cover them with a clean kitchen towel until the next night when I start to decorate them. Through out the decorating process they stay on the cake cooling racks until I am ready to package them. Mine are never soft but they are not hard either, they are always nice and firm with a good texture. It might also be the recipe, you might try another one until you find one that works for you. HTH
The moisture in the royal will go into the cookie and make it softer. If it was a little soft to begin with (closed container overnight) it might get too soft in the end.
Agreed. The cookies should not be packaged at all until they have dried with the decorations for 24 hours.
Thanks for your response. Im gonna try today another cookie recipe.
