  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 6 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 6 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • food coloring



  • In a mixer, cream sugar and butter until fluffy.
  • Add each egg, one at a time, beating after each egg until well combined.
  • Add sour cream and vanilla and beat well.
  • Add your flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix until combined. Your dough will be sticky.
  • Divide your dough into two pieces. Flour a cutting board and flatten dough into 1-1/2 inch thick rectangles. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and put in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  • Remove, from fridge, one rectangle at a time. Put dough back on your floured surface and roll out to ¼ inch thick.
  • Using a 2"-3” cookie cutter, cut out cookies and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Work in small batches, so dough stays cold
  • Bake at 375 for 8 minutes, until cookies are a tiny bit brown around the edges.
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely before frosting them. (Frosting recipe is below.)
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Cookies can be stored in freezer, if they are not frosted.


  • In your mixer cream the vanilla and butter. Beat in powdered sugar until creamy. One TB at a time, mix in the heavy whipping cream until your desired consistence. Add food color for a little fun.
