White Lily Frosted Soft Sugar Cookies
DH and I attended the Southern Women's Show in Raleigh back in April and saw a presentation from the White Lily Flour folks on cookies. The cookies were tasty so I am saving the recipes here for future use. DH loves this kind of cookie from the store, so I hope to make them for him soon.
- Ready In:
- 3 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup Butter Flavor Crisco
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3⁄4 cup sour cream
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Heat oven to 375. Prepare baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray or parchment paper. Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl. Combine shortening, sugar, egg, and vanilla in large bowl; beat 2 minutes. (Butter, powdered sugar, milk and 1 t. vanilla will be for frosting).
- Stir in sour cream and half dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Stir in remaining dry ingredients. Roll into 2" balls with oiled hands. Place on prepared baking sheet about 3" apart. Dip bottom of a glass into flour; press down to about 1/2" thickness.
- Bake for 10-11 minutes or until cookies begin to look dry on top. (Cookies will not be brown) Cool 2 minutes; remove to cooling racks. Cool completely.
- To prepare frosting, in a large mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy. Add sifted powdered sugar, milk, and 1 t. vanilla; beat on low until blended, beat on medium until light and fluffy. Add more milk if frosting is too thick. Stir in any desired food coloring and frost cookies.
