Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 8 mins

They are fluffy cookies. They are better than the store bought ones. My kids like them so much that I have to make more.


  1. Put shortening, sugar, eggs, and sour cream in bowl and then blend together.
  2. Add vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, and flour.
  3. Roll the dough out and then put your cookie cutter in the dough and have fun.
  4. Bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes.

These were just like those soft round frosted sugar cookies most grocery stores sell in their bakery. We rolled them out a little thick so that after they baked they were about 1/2 inch. They're not all that exciting on their own, but definitely a great base for some nice sweet frosting. The recipe didn't say to refrigerate the dough so we didn't, and it rolled out pretty well. My sister and I made these Christmas Eve to bring to a family Christmas party. One person said she really liked them, another said he liked them better than the grocery store ones.
