Sugar Cookie Recipe


I spent 3 HOURS making sugar cookies last night!
But...it was worth it - the dough tasting, the frosting sampling, 
and the fun with my 4 year old!
So here is the recipe for YOU!

OLD FASHIONED SOFT SUGAR COOKIES
3 1/2 C. sifted flour         1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. soda                      1 square butter
1/2 tsp. salt                     1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup sugar                     1 egg

Sift together flour, soda & salt.  In another bowl, combine remaining ingredients and beat 2 minutes.  Add flour mixture and stir well.  Roll out 1/4" to 1/2" thick (the thicker the better, I think!).  Cut into cookies and place on greased sheet.  Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes.  (DO NOT wait for cookies to brown before taking out.  This will make them too dry/hard.  My oven runs a little hot, so I baked them at 380 for only 7 minutes and they are perfect.  Just a side note!)

CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

1 tsp. vanilla
1 (3 oz) cream cheese
2 C. powdered sugar
1/4 C. butter

(add a little milk if you want to thin the frosting out)

Enjoy!
