Great recipe - very easy and as others have mentioned, it's perfectly moist and has a wonderful cakey texture.
This is a great recipe! They're a nice, cakey cookie which is what I was looking for. I will recommend using full fat sour cream. I used 1/2 fat and you could definitely taste a bit of a funky flavor but that was my fault. I might add a little bit more sugar next time. They stay nice and soft when you put frosting on them.
Thank you! This is a long lost family recipe! I tried many sour cream sugar cookie recipes until I found the right one... this is it! THANK YOU!
