Sour Cream Butter Horns

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Nicole Can Cook

This cookie is a traditional favorite on the family cookie platter. Have time to make this cookie, as the dough needs to be chilled 4 hrs-overnight.

Seems so easy, just roll out that dough. But no, it was crazy. I ended up having to add confectioners sugar (rather than flour) to the dough to tighten it up. The first batch was pathetic. Not being a quitter, I made a second batch. The second batch was much better. I rolled the dough between parchment paper and did not make them so thin. The flavor and the dough is fabulous, but this is not a beginner recipe. I am certain that Nicole Can Cook has made these so many times that she makes them in her sleep! They are delicious though!
