Here is the recipe to bake these amazing tasting sugar cookies from your own kitchen with ingredients that you will recognize:
5-6 cups flour
1 tbs. baking soda
1 tbs. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 stick butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 cups sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 stick butter
1/2 lb. powdered sugar
1/4 - 1/2 cup milk (determines frosting consistency)
1 tsp. almond extract or vanilla
When you are ready to bake cookies, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place dough on a floured surface, roll flat (the thicker the better) and use a cookie cutter, or a cup, to make round cookie shapes. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until puffy. Let cookies cool.
For frosting--soften a stick of butter to room temperature and place in a mixing bowl, stir in almond extract, milk, and powdered sugar until frosting is a creamy consistency. Add food coloring and mix well. Frost cookies and sprinkle with sprinkles!
Your kids will not know the difference...but you will!
