Here is a recipe that is richer, denser and more moist than your typical sugar cookie. If you didn’t tell someone that sour cream was in it, they wouldn’t know. These are perfect with just some red and green colored sugars sprinkled on top before baking or use a thin icing for the top. They can also be iced and decorated with frostings like other sugar cookies, but they are a little more durable than some recipes that use butter. Try them for Christmas in place of the butter or shortening type sugar cookie recipes:
Sour Cream Sugar Cookies
1 cup White sugar
1/2 cup Butter (softened)
1/2 cup Sour cream
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
2 1/2 cup All purpose flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Sugar (to roll dough in)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix together the sugar, butter, sour cream, vanilla extract and egg together. Stir in the remaining ingredients except for decorating sugar. Drop the dough by rounded teaspoons into the decorating sugar, rolling gently but firmly until it is completely coated with the sugar. Place cookies approx. 2″ apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten cookies to about 1/4″ thickness with the bottom of a glass. Bake for about 7 to 8 minutes or just until set. Cool for a few minutes before removing from baking sheets.
