You, dear blog reader, are about to receive a GEM of a recipe. I’m not even supposed to share this recipe with you because it’s SECRET – It’s that good. But I’m going to because everyone deserves to have a good sugar cookie cutout recipe. I just have never liked those Christmas cookies that are thin, and crispy. They were fun to decorate as a kid, but I didn’t really like to EAT them. 🙂 These are not THOSE cookies. These are fluffy, soft, and worth every single calorie. 🙂 Enjoy!
Cream together 2 C. sugar and 1 C. butter.
Add 3 eggs
Put 1 tsp. baking soda in the bottom of a separate bowl. Add several drops of hot water to make a thin paste. Add to this mixture 2 tsp. cream of tarter and 1 C. sour cream. Beat well until fluffy. Add this mixture to the sugar/butter mixture.
Add 5 C. flour.
Refrigerate several hours.
Roll out the cookies about 1/4 in. thick. These are meant to be thick cookies. Sometimes I make them even thicker. They are GREAT. So don’t worry about them being too thick. But definitely don’t make them too thin!
Cut the cookies in whatever shapes you like and bake in a 325 degree oven about 10 minutes. Do not overcook! They should not turn brown at all!
Look at how thick these turn out. Remember, don’t cut them too thin. You’ll probably be tempted, but don’t do it! They are better this way!
Here’s a good sugar cookie frosting recipe that I got from AllRecipes.com
