You know those amazing sugar cookies you get in the plastic boxes at the grocery store- that have that bright colored soft frosting and sprinkles on them that are so soft and fat? Well, this recipe makes those soft and fat sugar cookies. They are great! Of course, you can roll them out super thin and make them have more crunch too. I did that- because it made my shapes come out and look more like what it was supposed to. When I didn't roll it out thin enough they got all puffy. I guess puffy owls are cute too, though. We made these a couple weeks ago. B loved doing this. We did it for him, after all.
I told Brody it was time to clean up and this is the face I got. Haha! He gave it to me long enough for me to capture it.
We decorated them that night for family night activity. I made just simple powdered sugar, milk, & food coloring icing for Brody to use.
Yeah I'm still finding these sprinkles around the joint.
Soft Sugar Cookies:
1 c. butter
2 c. sugar
1 c. sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 1/2 to 5 1/2 c. flour (sifted)
Directions: Cream butter, sugar, sour cream, eggs, vanilla until smooth. Add dry ingredients. Mix just until combined. Chill in fridge at least 1 hour. Roll to 1/2'' thick on floured surface (the thicker, the softer, the less flour, the more flavor) Bake at 325F for about 11 minutes. Cookies will look barely done- do not over bake! (I'm not sure where this recipe originated from- I got it from a friend in my last church ward.)
(Supposed to be) Fall colored leaves, pumpkins, & an owl. Not red & yellow Christmas trees;)
There she blows. (She doesn't blow though... these are mighty tasty, seriously.)
