    Cathleen Colbert's Note:

    from The amazing thing about this sugar cookie is that it requires no chill time but is still easy to handle. Rose water is available in most stores catering to the middle eastern community.

      This is a really great sugar cookie recipe for cut-out cookies!!! It is so easy to roll out and the cookies bake up perfectly!!! I love the baking soda being added to the sour cream, it puffed up the sour cream and made for a light and fluffy cookie! You get to see the real chemistry on this one!!!! I did not taste the rose water and I used limoncello liqueur in place of the lemon extract and I didn't really taste that either. They did add good moisture to the dough though. I baked my cookies for just 9 minutes because I don't like any brown or crunchiness about my sugar cookies. Frosted them too with the Frosting for Sugar Cookies recipe by Deb's Recipes. I am searching for the perfect sugar cookie cut-out recipe and this one is definitely in the running for one of the best!!!! Thanks for the recipe!

      LOVE the flavor of these cookies. The rose water and the lemon are perfect together. Very easy to make, too! I can't wait to share these with my family on Thanksgiving. Thank you for the recipe.
