Frosted Sour Cream Cookies

Happy last week of May!  I can't believe we're almost to the end of the school year (but I'm so ready for it!).  The last few weeks, I've brought you some quick and easy chicken dinner recipes, but today, I wanted share another awesome cookies recipe.  Because if you know me at all, you know I don't usually go more than a week or two without making cookies.  These, I think, are going to be regular requests (at least by me!  I love frosted sugar cookies!).  I ran into them one day when I was searching Pinterest and MyRecipeMagic  looking for some new cookie recipes.  I wanted to try some cookies with sour cream because I had some to use up, also, I had made some cookies previously with sour cream and it added a wonderful texture to the cookies and wanted to try some other recipes with sour cream. I hope you enjoy these and have a great week!

Sour Cream Cookies
Adapted from Kristy Shellhorn


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 coup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
For the Frosting

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons butter (softened)
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together and then mix in the egg, sour cream, and vanilla.  Add in the dry ingredients.  Chill for at least an hour.
After dough has chilled, preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Then  flour your workspace and roll out cookie dough (suggested thickness is 1/8 inch), then cut out.  Place cut dough on cookie sheets lined with silicone baking mats.  Bake for 8 - 10 minutes.  
Make sure that cookies have cooled completely before frosting.  (I really love this frosting!  It's easy to make and doesn't just taste like powdered sugar!)
