Soft Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 8mins
Recipe by Winepedler

This is a delicious Sugar Cookie that I have been making for years. If you roll them a little thick and don't over bake, they are the best and stay moist. Use whatever cookie cutter suits the occasion! Make sure to refrigerate the dough overnight.

Very good with buttercream frosting on them!! Dough was easy to work with after refrigerating overnite. Thanks for the recipe.
