Super Soft Sugar Cookies

These Sugar cookies are sooooo delicious!! They are soft, flaky, and sweet! 
These rival any bakery cookies. I made them for Valentines but they would be perfect for any occasion.
This recipe came from my sister Jennifer Hedrick
1 C. Sour Cream
1 C Oil
3 Eggs
1 t Vanilla
1 1/2 C Sugar
1 1/2 t Baking Soda
1 1/2 t Baking Powder
1/2 t Salt
4-5 C Flour 
2 Tubes Vanilla Frosting

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Cream together, sour cream, oil, eggs, vanilla and sugar.
  3. Add in, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add flour 1 cup at a time, I usually use about 41/2 cups, you want the dough to be firm but still soft and gooey. I hope that makes sense.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight, or freeze for 11/2-2 hours.
  5. Cover counter top and dough with flour and roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness
  6. Cut dough into whatever shape your little heart desires.
  7. Bake for 7 minutes. They will not be brown at all, in fact they don't really look done to me but they are and if you cook them longer they get crispy.
  8. Put on a cooling rack, once cooled, frost those yummy cookies. I use store bought frosting, just the vanilla kind, but if you have an amazing recipe for frosting let me know. I think a little lemon in the frosting would taste good also but I haven't tried it yet.
  9. To make your own colored sprinkles just put some sugar and food coloring in a Ziploc bag and mix very very well. 

  1. This recipe makes about 40-45 cookies depending on the thickness. So what I've done in the past is cut the dough in half , form it into a log and wrap it in saran wrap then freeze it for future use. To thaw it just pop in the microwave and defrost it, it defrosts quickly.
