Mm-mm Sugar Cookies!

Mom's & Grandma's Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

  • 1 cup margarine or butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 t. lemon extract (or 2 T. lemon zest-so good!)
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 2 t. baking soda
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 cups flour
  1. Combine sugar and margarine, creaming until smooth. Add eggs and extracts, stir. Add dry ingredients, alternating with sour cream.
  2. Roll out on floured surface. Use cookie cutters for desired shapes.
  3. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, don't overbake! Frost when cooled.
These are my favorite sugar cookies! Right up there with Lofthouse. These are soft and have a great flavor that tastes good even without frosting. My mom always added a little orange extract to the frosting (store bought or home-made) for that little extra.
