Why I Love This Recipe

Submitted by Rachel P: This is the sugar cookie recipe my mom used every time she made cut out cookies – I didn’t know one could make a sugar cookie without sour cream. She made them so fabulously, people were always commenting it was the best they’d ever had.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 c. sugar
4-5 c flour
1 c butter
¼ tsp salt
4 eggs
1 tsp soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 c sour cream
1 tsp nutmeg


Pre-heat oven to 375

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy, then add eggs and vanilla and beat well, then mix in sour cream.

Stir in four cups flour and other dry ingredients. Mix well.

Use fifth cup of flour to mix into dough as you roll and cut the cookies.

Bake for 8-12 minutes. Let cool before frosting and enjoy!

In the more humid regions, try using a little less sour cream to reduce the need for adding extra flour.

Pairs Well With

Cold milk!
