Sour Cream Cookie Cutouts
Posted by bakingway
Everyone looks forward to the colorful iced cookies that the season brings. I’ve already given a recipe for Sugar Cookies (check the archives), so today’s recipe is for Sour Cream Cutouts. These cookies have a touch of nutmeg, which might seem a bit unusual, but, trust me, they’re awesome! They are softer than Sugar Cookies and this batch makes a LOT of cookies, which is ok because your family and friends will love them!Cream: 1 cup Butter 2 Cups Sugar Add: 2 Eggs 2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Sift Together: 5-1/4 Cups AP Flour 2 tsp. Baking Powder 1 tsp. Baking Soda 1 tsp. Salt 1/2 tsp. Nutmeg Mix alternately with flour: 1 Cup Sour Cream
Chill the dough for a few hours or overnight. Roll out on floured surface to 1/4″ thick. Cutout with your favorite cookie cutters and place on parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.
