I give you my favorite sugar cookie recipe as a holiday gift. I swear it is THE BEST recipe. I roll the dough out to about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick and then cut into the shapes you like best!
Happy Holidays from my kitchen to yours!
Soft Sour Cream Sugar Cookies
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt & nutmeg.
In large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth.
Beat in the egg, vanilla & sour cream until well blended.
Stir in the sifted ingredients.
Wrap dough in plastic wrap & chill overnight.
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C)
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired shaped with cookie cutters.
Place cookies 1 1/2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
Frost with your favorite cookie icing.
Not mine, because I don't have any closeups but they look JUST like this. Sooooo good!
