The Perfect Sugar Cookies

My mother stole this recipe from my piano teacher years ago and it has become a favorite in our family.  Every Valentines, Halloween or Christmas I find myself making these delicious sugar cookies and frosting them with homemade buttercream and sprinkles!  They aren’t overly sweet so they pair perfectly with a rich frosting.  I hope you love them as much as we do!

The Perfect Sugar Cookie

Jacklyn’s Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 cup sour cream

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp baking soda

4 tsp baking powder

5 1/2 cups flour

1/2 tsp salt

Cream the butter and sugar, adding the eggs one at a time.  Add the remaining ingredients until well blended.  Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refridgerate for at least 1 hour (or overnight).  Roll out and cut into shapes.  Bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes (depending on thickness).  Makes 4 dozen small cookies.
