It's that time of year. I love sugar cookies.
Does anyone have a favorite sugar cookie recipe? This is a favorite of mine. It comes originally from a dear friend, Macy, but I got it on a flyer from my sister-in-law who is a real estate agent. If you like the really soft sugar cookies, this is the recipe for you. If you want a crisp, crunchy cookie, keep looking. Hope you like it.
Macy's Sugar Cookies
6 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup butter (no wonder these are good)
2 cups sugar
3 tsp. vanilla
1 cup sour cream
Cream together sugar and butter, then add eggs, vanilla and sour cream. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to creamed mixture. It will become stiff. Roll out dough on a floured surface (it says to 1/2" thick but they puff up a little so I definitely would roll them thinner. I think it must be a typo and should be 1/4"). Cut with cookie cutters. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Makes about 5 dozen. These are AMAZING cookies.
Sugar Cookie Frosting
2/3 cup butter
6 cups powdered sugar
1 dash salt
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
Combine all ingredients and have fun frosting.
A while ago my sister, Steff, put on her blog some panty cookies that she made from sugar cookie dough and a heart shaped cookie cutter. I thought they were hilarious and made them for our YW leaders for Valentine's Day. So if you want to make something funny, try these. (I couldn't find the picture Steff posted).
