This is a really quick and easy recipe for sugar cookies that are soft, and easy to decorate. I have used it a few times in the past, and the cookies have always turned out great.
revised from a recipe found here
- 1 cup butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 5 1/2 cups flour
Once you have mixed all of the ingredients together, you can roll the cookie dough out onto a floured surface (I like to just roll it straight on the counter) to about 1/4 inch thick.
Next you can use cookie cutters to cut out shapes of your choice. Place the shapes on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake in a preheated oven at 375 for 7-8 minutes. When you take them out of the oven they will not looked all the way cooked - but they are. Do not over bake. Let them cool for about 5 minutes then remove them from the cookie sheet and place them on a cooling rack. Once they have cooled completely you can whip up your favourite frosting recipe and start decorating! Enjoy!
