DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Beat the sugar and butter until light and fluffy using an electric mixer on high speed.
  • Beat in the egg white and the vanilla.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture and the sour cream alternately and beat until just blended.
  • Shape into a disk, wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray 2 large baking sheets with nonstick spray.
  • Set a large rack over a sheet of wax paper.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough to a thickness of 1/4 inch.
  • Using a 2 1/2 inch leaf-shaped cookie cutter, cut out the cookies rerolling the scraps to make a total of 28 cookies.
  • With a spatula, place the cookies 1/2 inch apart on the baking sheets.
  • Bake until the cookies are lightly browned at the edges, 12-15 minutes.
  • Transfer the cookies to the rack and cool completely.
  • To make the frosting, combine all the ingredients except the colored sugar (if using) in a bowl.
  • Use a spoon to drizzle the frosting over the cookies and sprinkle with colored sugar.
  • Let stand until the frosting is set, about 20 minutes.
