These are a not-too-sweet cake like cookie and I really enjoyed them. I had to use 3 tablespoons of half and half because my dough was a little dry, but that could be a lot of different things other than how the recipe was written. Very good!! I imagine these would be fantastic with coffee and I'll be trying that out in the morning!
Dough was a little difficult to work with, but cookies came out looking fabulous. This reminded me a little of Amish sugar cookies in texture (you can find them on allrecipes as well). Too much cornstarch though (gave it a sour aftertaste). These looked nice, but I would never make them again due to the flavor.
I made the first batch with the original 24qty recipe. My guys loved them so much that the next day I found all the ingredients needed to make them on top of the counter. So I went back into the web site and changed the amount for 96. But unfortunately they are coming out with a sour after taste. Can any one help me figure out why?
I really liked this cookie. It tastes just like a cookie my mom makes. It's not too sweet, but very dense, which makes it great with a cup of coffee. My kids liked using the cookie cutters with these cookies, although it did take longer with them helping!
These cookies are great for people who like a denser more cake-like cookie. Very simple. They are not very sweet so would be better with something, such as coffee, like D-ANNA suggests.
As for the bitter aftertaste in larger recipes, Zira Julio, my guess would be the baking powder is the problem. Try cutting back on it a little and see what happens. If that doesn't work, it must be the cornstarch.
A great cookie recipe, simple and good flavor. Everyone that trys one has good comments on it. Thanks for the recipe.
very good cookie. dough is easy to work with. we frosted them with a powdered sugar icing. perfect balance of sweet but not too sweet. only our first batch really StuckToThePan!!! we then used parchment paper with no problems. next time i will try them on a GREASED cookie sheet.
This is a great recipe. I made them smaller by cutting them into medicine cups. I loved them. They were a hit!!!
