About a year ago, I went on a quest to find some yummy sugar cookies. Most of the sugar cookie recipes I found were hard and dry, and I personally am not a fan of dry cookies that taste like I am eating a cardboard box. Or I found recipes that were more moist but flattened out too much.
I posted a plea to all my friends on facebook and one friend said she had a recipe from a friend that was just like the frosted sugar cookies you find at the grocery stores. So I thought I would give it a try.
Out of all the sugar cookies I tested, these are my favorite!! While these are very similar to the frosted sugar cookies you find in stores, I think these are sooo much better.
Cream until light and fluffy
1 1/2 c sugar
1 c cold butter
1 c sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
Mix dry ingredients and fold into cream mixture
1tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 1/2 c flour
Chill 1 hour and bake 425 for 4-5 minutes. I used my 1 table spoon scoop and then rolled into balls and flattened to about 1/3 of an inch. You can make them bigger but this size is perfect since they are very rich.
1 cube butter
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 bag powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
(I add a little milk to help thin it out to the consistency that I like.)
