    Marianne5's Note:

    There are several sour cream cookies posted on Zaar, but none like my recipe. A friend gave this to me years ago. The cookies are tender and delicious. Especially with cream cheese icing.

      I've been searching for the perfect Christmas sugar cookie cut-out recipe and have found it! These are delicious! The cream cheese icing makes them such an indulgent treat, rather than just a thoughtless sugar fix like so many sugar cookies. My only suggestions to the recipe would be to cream the butter and sugar before adding remaining ingredients, and chill the dough already flattened somewhat, so it's easier to roll out later.

      I made these for a potluck picnic today and we all loved them! I found the dough so easy to manage when rolling and cutting out the shapes (I dusted the board with powdered sugar instead of flour to prevent crumbling and that worked very nicely too) and the icing took to coloring perfectly. The cookies and icing were delicious and with a standard-size cookie cutter, I actually yielded just over 70 cookies from the recipe. Thank you tremendously! Terrific recipe!

      Consistency is fantastic -- perfectly puffy and soft. However, they are somewhat bland. I would add a drop of lemon, peppermint or almond extract next time just to give them some flavor. Maybe even add more butter? Otherwise, a perfect pleasant and crowd-pleasing Christmas cookie.
