Sour Cream Cookies

This is my friend Kristin's cookie recipe.  This recipe reminds me of the ones my mom used to make that we cannot find the recipe for.  I have tried other sour cream cookie recipes and they did not turn out right, they were to cakey.  These are perfect!  -Kristin

4 c. sifted flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. nutmeg
1 c. butter, softened
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1/2 c. sour cream
1 t. vanilla

About 2 cups powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla
  • Sift flour with the baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg.  Set aside.
  • Beat butter, sugar and egg until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in sour cream and vanilla and beat till smooth.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture until well combined.
  • Wrap dough overnight in wax paper and refrigerate overnight.
  • Roll out dough 1/3 inch thick and cut with cookie cutters into desired shapes.
  • Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.  Cool completely before frosting.
  • Mix all frosting ingredients together adding the milk slowly until you get the consistency you want.
