Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

This recipe was given to me many years ago by a former neighbor who was also from my home state -- Maine!

I have been using it over the years ever since and it has become a regular on my holiday dessert table.

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Cream together the sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla until well mixed.

Blend in the sour cream.

In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

Mix together, alternating dry and creamed ingredients until thoroughly blended.

Cover dough and chill for about a half hour; then roll it out on a board, using more flour for desired consistency. Cut with cookie cutters and sprinkle with colored sugars, if desired.

Bake at 350F degrees for approximately 10 minutes; or until done.

Store cookies in an airtight container.
