Hello, My Blog Friends!
Sorry I have not been around too much lately.
School has been crazy and my weekends have been very busy...in a very good way. Details to come!
I made these cookies for my department meeting the other day. My colleagues liked them very much. Hope they don't remember just how much they liked them because I am never making them again. I am just not a rolled cookie gal. I nearly killed myself off trying to roll these out. There was flour all over. It was not pretty.
You are probably more patient and talented, so go for it!
SOUR CREAM CUT OUT COOKIES
3 1/4 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. soda
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. butter
Sift together: flour, salt and soda. Combine, in different bowls, butter, eggs, sugar and vanilla, mix. Add sour cream and 1/2 of flour and blend. Add rest of flour. Put in refrigerator 20 minutes. Roll thin and cut out. Bake in oven at 350 or 400 degrees until done (light brown). For softer cookies don't roll out thin.
Don't the cookies look pretty?
Here's what my sweatshirt looked like after the battle with the dough.
How do normal people make cookies without making a mess?
