These were kinda dry and puffy not quite what I was expecting. Good flavor though. I will be looking for another recipe.

Every year I host a Christmas Cookie Decorating Party for adults, and I lost my recipe for sour cream sugar cookies. This one looked very similiar. We LOVED them... in fact, we are making a batch this weekend for the kiddos... This was a hit!

I thought rolling it out to 1/2" resulted in a very thick cookie. It also to about 20 minutes in my 325 F oven to get golden brown. Taste was great!
