Cookie Cutter Sugar Cookies


    • 1 cup butter
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 3 tsp vanilla
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 2 tsp baking soda
    • 5 1/2 cups flour


    • Preheat oven to 375°F.
    • In mixer, cream butter and sugar.
    • Add eggs and vanilla.
    • Add sour cream.
    • Combine salt, soda, and flour, and add to mixture.
    • Roll out on floured surface to about 1/3 to 1/4 inch thick. Really.
    • Use a spatula to carefully slide under each cookie and place onto greased (with Pam) parchment-lined cookie sheets.
    • Bake for 7-8 minutes.
      • They will not look done. Do not cook them longer.
    • Wait about 5 minutes and then transfer carefully to a cooling rack.
      • If you wait longer they will get soggy on the bottom and sometimes get stuck to the parchment paper.
