I have been making these cookies for years. I am not sure where the original recipe came from. I have add a few of my own touches to make them even better. These are soft and light. They make the perfect “Sugar Cookie”.
6 Cups flour
2 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp salt
1 Cup Butter, softened
2 Cups Sugar
2 Tsp Vanilla Bean Powder
1 Cup Sour Cream
Cream sugar and butter together. Add eggs, Vanilla Bean Powder and sour cream. Once nice and creamy add the Baking Soda, Salt. Add the flour gradually, Makes a stiff batter, may have to finish mixing with hands if your mixer is not up to the task. In small batches, roll out dough 1/4 inch thick and use your favorite cookie cutter. Place on un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 min at 325 degrees. Remove from oven when edges start to brown. Cool and frost.
* This makes a lot! Recipe can easily be halfed.
I used a simple glaze for the frosting. Check out this recipe from Cleverly Simple.
