The BEST Sugar Cookies

These cookies are so moist and yummy! You may think it's weird the recipe calls for sour cream, but it makes them that much more moist! I love this recipe!

3 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cube butter
1/2 cup sour cream

Mix flour, soda, and salt, set aside. Combine other ingredients for 2 minutes. Add the flour mixture and mix well. Make sure to flour well when rolling out dough. Cook at 400 degrees for 4-7 minutes. It's hard to know how long to cook these, it just depends on the oven but keep an eye on them, you don't want them turning golden, they need to stay that white color. Just take them out when they look not quite done, they will probably be done.


2 cups powdered sugar
1 stick butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 package cream cheese
1/2 tsp almond flavoring (optional, but yummy)
1 tsp popcorn salt (to help get rid of the grainy texture)

Mix together. Add color dye for fun frosting. Enjoy!
