Sour Cream Cookie Cutouts

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!

1 cup Butter
2 Cups Sugar  

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.

Ice with Royal Icing – recipe is with the Sugar Cookie recipe in the archives.  Decorate as desired!

  1. Chris: Is this the recipe that Grandma McQueen used? I have been looking for it for a long time! I will have to try these!

  2. Last night my girls had to go to youth related event. They brought whole tray of cookies I had been baking (most with your recipes). They were the hit of the evening! The kids were all asking; “is your mom a professional baker? Does she do this full-time? …..etc….

    I can only take partial credit—– I know how to follow a recipe. You need the rest of the credit—-creating, developing and sharing these great recipes. Thank You!
