Sandy's Super Sugar Cookies
June 28, 2017

I am a Cookie Decorating Instructor and I have always used and given to my students a recipe from a very good Cookie Decorating Book. I compared the two recipes and they were almost identical EXCEPT for the baking soda and cream of tartar. My usual recipe does not have those two ingredients . What a difference these two make. The cookies did not spread and they seem lighter in taste. This is my new favorite recipe. A hint for bakers to roll cookie dough. Roll between two sheets of PARCHMENT paper right after mixing. You can use long dowel rods 1/4" on each side of your parchment. paper to get perfect thickness cookies. I use perfection sticks purchased on line for this purpose. The sticks come in three thicknesses for different doughs. Refrigerate sheets of dough until cold. Cut out your cookies and move to baking sheet while cold. You can reroll the cookie dough . WAX PAPER does NOT work for rolling the dough.
