- Brent and I made sugar cookies last night. Brent had a ball making his into crazy shapes. We have a crown shaped cookie cutter that Brent manipulated into a few dinosaurs. I have had a few requests for the recipe. Here it is!
For the Cookies: (I suggest cutting this in half, I ended up with about 70 cookies)
- 2 Cups Sugar (I always use raw sugar/organic sugar)
- 1 Cup Softened Butter
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Cup Sour Cream
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 5 Cups Flower (I used White Whole Wheat, I also threw in a tablespoon of Vital Wheat Gluten)
These made very moist and just sweet enough cookies.
Then I frosted with this buttercream:
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup butter
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 2 TBSP milk
