Best Ever Sugar Cookies!


One of my mama’s friends shared the very best sugar cookie recipe with us long ago and we use it every Christmas!  I wanted to share it with you since Santa’s comin to town;)  He never leaves a crumb behind!  Make a double batch because you’ll want to take them to all your holiday gatherings too- our friends and family look forward to them each year…

The Best Sugar Cookies:

31/4 c. flour

1/2 c. butter or marg.

1 c. sugar

11/2 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 egg lightly beaten

1/2 c. sour cream

-preheat to 350

sift flour, salt, and soda together.  in another bowl cream butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla.  add sour cream.  then add flour mixture.  roll out dough on floured counter.  cut out 1/4 to 1/2 in. thick.  if dough is too sticky sprinkle with a bit more flour and work in.  bake for 10 min.  do not overcook!  they don’t get really brown… 😉  another key is to use homemade buttercream frosting.  most cookbooks have a recipe for this in them or google works great too!  oh by golly these will make you jolly!  have fun.
