Has anyone added Vanilla to this recipe? I made them once and they didn't turn out at all - we suspect that I may have had only 1 cup of sugar in it - trying it again today but am nervous....they didn't flatten at all during backing for some reason...
for those who say they go hard. keep in a container AND a a piece of bread! we do it all the time bread slice keeps cookies soft or when cookies have gone hard soften them up. don't know why but it works. we use the end since no one likes to eat that piece
Using 4 eggs the dough was almost too sloppy to be handled. A very messy cookie to make, but quite delicious when fresh. Unfortunately they don't keep well at all, turning hard and almost stale-tasting within a day or so.
The Chocolate Pixie dough is a soft cookie dough and even sticky. it is very important to chill the dough to firm it up. These cookies are not a crisp cookie and so should be stored in a container with a tight-fitting lid between sheets of waxed paper.
I want to try this recipe but I am thinking that it may be too sweet. If I cut it down to 1 and 1/2 cups of sugar, will it still work?
This is a great question! We test each recipe many times and vary ingredients etc. in each test. To cut back the sugar by 1/2 cup is, I believe, too much. The cookie will not be as sweet but the texture and flavor may also be affected. You could experiment and try about 2 -3 tablespoons less sugar to see if it makes the cookie better. Let us know what you find.
My mom's been baking these cookies since we were kids, and we are still obsessed with them. I bake them for parties all the time and they are always a crowd-pleaser. My brother bakes them for himself all the time, and they're also always a crowd-pleaser (a crowd of one, mind you).
