So here's where it all begins......making basic sugar cut-out cookies.
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
4 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg, vanilla, & sour cream. Blend in dry ingredients.
This makes me smile......to see that perfect little ball waiting to be made into beautiful cookies. :)
I do not refrigerate my dough. I mix it up and immediately start rolling it out.
I like my cookies to be thick, soft, and not brown.
