Sweet Treats

Friday after dropping the kids off at school I noticed a yard sale- so of course I had to stop.  Never mind that I do not have a home to furnish and most of my stuff is in boxes. For $4 I went home with a stash of cookie cutters, which meant of course that I had to make cookies.

I whipped up a batch of my favorite sugar cookies, my kids were over the moon and my waist line continues to expand.  I’ve shared the recipe before, but I’m sharing it again, it’s that good.

LoftHouse Copy Cat Sugar Cookies

1/2c butter
1 1/4c sugar
2 eggs + 1 yolk
1t vanilla
1/2t baking powder
1/2t baking soda
1/2t salt
1/2c sour cream
3 1/2c flour (add 1/2c more, or more to get consistency right)

Cream butter and sugar.  Beat in eggs, sour cream, and vanilla.  Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl, and slowly add to wet mixture.  Adding more flour as needed.  Refrigerate if your dough is too soft to roll and shape.  Roll out to 1/4? thick and use cookie cutters.  Bake for 8min at 425f.  Cool on wire rack before frosting.

I typically use a basic butter cream frosting (butter, whipping cream, vanilla and powdered sugar), but royal icing would work too.  Happy baking.
