Today I decided to go ahead and finally make a sugar cookie recipe I had seen a friend post it on face book a while back.  My friend, Barb Bach, had posted it and so I wanted to see the difference between it and the traditional sugar cookie which I think is that it has more moisture which is good here in our dry Colorado. You will see a note below about reducing the flour.  I think you will really like them!

So here is this recipe:

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies - makes about 30 medium large

1 1/2 cups sugar, 2 sticks of soft butter, 2 eggs, 2 Tsp vanilla, 1 cup of sour cream, 4 1/2 cups flour (I did not sift and I think next time I would use 4 cups only sifted flour), 1 Tsp baking powder, 1 Tsp baking soda, 1 Tsp salt

Cream sugar& butter, add eggs, vanilla, then sour cream.  Add dry ingredients.  This recipe calls for refrigerating dough overnight which I did not do.

Roll out of floured pastry cloth.  I use a cloth covered rolling pin which I floured.  Cut with cookie cutters.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

1 stick butter, 2 Tsp vanilla, 1 1/2 lbs powdered sugar, add milk to make spreadable.  I used red food coloring and sprinkles.

In terms of DIY:  This is an old  mohogany flip top tea
 table painted with Cece Caldwell's Chalk  Paint!

Have a great week!

Those look good. I have an old receipt for sour cream cookies that I think I may have made years ago but I think I will try yours! And frost and sprinkle too! Who doesn't like frosting and sprinkles!

Oh Bernideen, your chocolate pot and cups are wonderful! And the cookies look delicious, thanks for the recipe! Have a great rest of your week! We are celebrating my daughter's 16th birthday this evening, just got back from Texas Roadhouse.

Thank you for sharing this, Bernideen! My sugar cookies are pretty firm, but I recently received some that were soft, and they were so delicious, I was thinking I needed to look up a recipe ... and now I have one!

What's your review on the cookie recipe? I love soft sugar cookies with frosting if the recipe worked well for you, I'd like to try it.

Thank you so much for the great sugar cookie recipe - they look really good. Did you like them better than your other recipe?

Your table looks so good with the roses, tea cup and cookies.

Have a great weekend.

Your decorated sugar cookies look so good I've got to try your recipe. Thank you for sharing your recipe and your DIY chalk painted mohogany flip top tea table at Vintage Charm . I haven't tried Cece Caldwell's Chalk Paint yet but your table turned out beautifully.
