Christmas Cut-Outs

I'm linking up with Tammy over at Klinger Cafe to share our favorite Christmas Cookie recipe. It's the very same dough that I made with my mom and that she made with her mom before that. On the farm, we actually used fresh cream that had soured, but you can just sour the cream with lemon juice or vinegar. EnJOY!


Sour Cream Sugar Cookies


1 c. butter, beaten
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. soured half and half cream
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda. 

Soften the butter and beat with sugar and egg.  Sour the cream and add to butter mixture, then stir in dry ingredients and vanilla. Chill dough overnight. Roll out and cut into fun shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, then cool before gathering your family around the table to frost and decorate with sprinkles.



Merry Christmas from our kitchen to yours!
