How to Make Kandi’s Sour Cream Sugar Cookies
- Pre-heat the oven to 350 F
Beat the butter until fluffy. Add the Sugar, 3 Eggs, and Vanilla. Cream together until well blended. SET ASIDE.
- In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder & baking soda together. FOLD INTO THE CREAMED MIXTURE.
- Chill the dough for an hour. Divide the dough into 3 or 4 parts whichever is easy for you. Sprinkle with maybe a tablespoon of flour onto each side of the dough, enough flour to make it easy to work with without adding too much more flour; fold the dough over a few times before rolling out a 1/4 inch thick, and cut with a cup or your festive shaped cookie cutters.
- Place the cut cookies onto an UN-greased cookie sheet or one covered with parchment paper. Bake 8-12 minutes, in 350 F preheated oven. DO NOT OVER BAKE. Bake until lightly browned on the bottom of the cookies. Place baked cookie on to cooling rack, and top with your favorite frosting recipe.
