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


    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


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


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

    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

    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
