READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Marianne5

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.

My husband makes these cookies for the holidays and has renamed the cookies "The Irresistibles". He rolls the dough out thick (about 1/4") and they puff up and are very tender. I have to admit, they are quite good. Everyone loves them and it's hard to eat just one. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Marianne!

  1. For Cookies:.
  2. Mix butter, sugar, egg yolks, vanilla, and sour cream together. Add dry ingredients to mixture. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate overnight. Roll out on a lightly floured surface or pastry cloth. Cut into 1/8th to 1/4th inch thickness using your favorite cookie cutters. Bake at 350°F for approximately 10 minutes or until the bottom is lightly browned. May need more time if on the thicker side. Cool on wire rack. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to apply icing.
  3. For icing:.
  4. Cream butter, cream cheese, and vanilla together. Gradually add powder sugar until blended. Thin with milk to desired consistency. If adding coloring paste, you may not need milk to thin.
  5. After icing cookies, lay flat in the fridge until set. Then store in a airtight container with a small square of wax paper between cookies. Store in fridge until ready to serve.
