I'm new here, so not sure whether this or the Cookie section will yield more answers.
I have been YEARNING for a Smiley Face Cookie recipe. You know, those DELICIOUS ones they sell at bakeries? Not quite sure of the type of cookie. Sugar/Butter is what I'm thinking, but it's not a hard cookie and not a crumbly cookie either. The perfect blend so that when you bite into it, it feels soft, yet it holds up. Not hard icing,(So Royal is out,) yet not buttercream, CHOCOLATEY goo for the eyes and the smile? Like this http://www.google.com/imgres?q=smiley+face+cookies&um=1&sa=N&biw=1680&bih=925&hl=en&tbm=isch&tbnid=B6xepH-4ahBNoM:&imgrefurl=http://www.yelp.com/biz_photos/sauers-bakery-carol-stream%3Fselect%3DPmzmEGntZnGWHjroBAVheQ&docid=rGRbC3MqeIH9xM&imgurl=http://s3-media3.ak.yelpcdn.com/bphoto/PmzmEGntZnGWHjroBAVheQ/l.jpg&w=367&h=400&ei=zSTBUdTVOMbl0gGhtoCwDw&zoom=1&ved=1t:3588,r:85,s:0,i:353&iact=rc&page=3&tbnh=174&tbnw=178&start=66&ndsp=37&tx=93&ty=76
( Did you just hear the Hallelujah Chorus?)
The bakery that I used to get these wonderful creations at closed
I know, how am I surviving?
BUT, when I have tried to find a recipe online, (there are very few,) nothing looks close to the ones I used to get.
So does anybody know of a recipe/work at a bakery and sell these Yellow gems that would like to help a sistah out?
It will be EVER so appreciated!
Just realized this is in the Cake forums... oops! I will move this to the Cookie forum.
