Introduction

Just like grandma used to make! These sugar cookies are light and fluffy. The secret is sour cream! Just like grandma used to make! These sugar cookies are light and fluffy. The secret is sour cream!
Number of Servings: 60

Ingredients

    6 cups flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 cup butter, softened
    2 cups sugar
    3 eggs
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cups non-fat sour cream

    1 canister vanilla frosting (or homemade)
    sprinkles for decoration

Tips

Bake cookies for 7 minutes if you want a very light, soft cookie and longer for a crisper-edged cookie.


Directions

Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, blend together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in eggs, vanilla, and sour cream and stir until combined. Add in the flour mixture and stir until everything comes together in a stiff dough. Divide dough in two and wrap each portion in plastic wrap; chill for at least 3 hours. On a floured surface, roll out each half of the dough to about 1/4-1/8 in thick. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes and place on an ungreased baking sheet; repeat with remaining dough. Bake the cookies at 425 degrees F. for 7-11 minutes, until the cookies are set. Remove cookies from pan to cooling racks to cool completely.

Frost and decorate as desired.
Serving Size: 60 cut-out cookies

    I think they could be implying that it's the "1 1/2 cups non-fat sour cream" that makes them healthy? Of course, we can all see through that. I never comment on recipes but this one is nuts for being on Spark.

    These things are my Walmart binge food (not that I binge anymore). :-Q - 3/10/14

    I have a very similar recipe and use I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and a sugar substitute. They are delicious. - 3/10/14

    I have made similar recipes but not this exact one. I have to add my voice to those who think this is not Spark-worthy. I wish SP would confine itself to healthy recipes for real. Many of us have not learned to moderate our intake of sweets; seeing this kind of recipe is an invitation to disasaster. - 3/11/14

    Not my idea of a healthy sparkpeople recipe. I look here for great alternative recipes, even desserts can be tasty without taking almost half the calories I allow for a lunch. I need more nutritional bang for my buck. - 3/10/14

    These are delicious to bring to someone else's house for a party! Being diabetic, I need to use my calories a bit more wisely, it's just too easy to rack up the carbs and calories on this one! :-( - 3/10/14

    This will have to be one that I stay away from. For whatever reason these luscious pillows of sweetness set me off. I won't eat one. I'll eat all of them. Other cookies I can limit myself but not these. They look marvelous though. - 3/10/14

    This is the "original recipe" with frosting added. It's not healthy and not original. Truly disapointing. - 3/13/14
