Sugar Cookies

by Brenda

Ask and ye shall receive. This is my all-time favorite Sugar Cookie recipe. I got it from an old roommate. The sour cream may through you off, but they make super yummy, fluffy and soft Sugar Cookies. I usually frost them with a basic cream cheese frosting.

1 c Butter (softened)
3 Eggs
1 ½ c Sugar
2t Vanilla
1 c Sour Cream
5 ½ c Flour (more will be added when rolling, so ok if little sticky)
2t Baking Powder
1t Baking Soda
¼ t Salt

Cream together butter and sugar, then blend in eggs and vanilla. Add sour cream and mix until creamy. Combine dry ingredients and then add the dry ingredients to the wet ones.

Roll dough out to desired thickness (About ¼” for large cookies, ½” for small). Cut into shapes and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes (just before the edges go brown). Remove immediately from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
