Sour Cream Sugar Cookies




Time to make some Valentine cookies! So I pulled out my Mom's SOUR CREAM SUGAR COOKIE recipe, it's so good! Here's the recipe:
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter (I use promise margarine)
2 eggs
1/2 c. sour cream ( I use light sour cream)
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
4 c. flour
Mix sugar and butter. Add eggs and vanilla and sour cream. Mix in flour, soda and salt. If dough is too sticky add more flour. Roll out and cut with cutters. Bake at 375 degrees. (In my oven I bake them for exactly 8 min.) Makes about 2 doz.
I just used Betty Crocker frosting and sprinkles to decorate. I tinted the frosting in pink, purple and a butter color. They look so pretty and Sabrina had a blast helping me. If anyone tries this recipe, let me know how they turned out! I will probably make them again for Easter. Tomorrow is Sabrina's Valentine Party at school and I will be there to help. Will try and get pix!
