READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by MARIA MAC *

A great old fashioned sugar cookie. The sour cream gives this a nice flavor. You can drizzle with melted chocolate or with a glaze.

Yum! A lovely simple sugar cookie. Great texture, perfectly done when they were light brown. Would be nice with some colored sugar or a simple vanilla or almond glaze, but we enjoyed them very much as is. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
