Blue Ribbon Recipe by

This is another one of my Grandma Bure's recipes. The sour cream gives it an unusual taste. Over the years, I've had kids of varying ages come to make and decorate these Christmas cookies. Great memories and yummy cookies!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Add a bit of color to your cookie tray with these Christmas cookies. They're a cross between a butter cookie and a sugar cookie. The dough is just right for using cookie cutters and, once baked, the cookies hold their shape. A great recipe if you're hosting a cookie decorating party.
