Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

 The perfect cookie for cutouts. Since I found this recipe, in the “Cookie Cookbook” it’s the only one I use for Christmas cookies. DD thinks they are just MARVOLUS!

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup butter, — softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 egg
1 tbs. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
3 1/2 – 4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder

Stir baking soda into sour cream and set aside.
Cream together butter and sugar.

Add egg, vanilla, and salt.

Add sour cream mixture.

Add flour and baking powder.

Use enough flour so dough will be able to be rolled.

Chill for at least an hour before working.

Roll dough until about 1/4-inch thick, then cut out with cookie cutters.

Bake at 375º F. until golden brown, approximately 10 minutes.

Time may be more or less depending on the size of your cookies and your oven.
