Pammy’s Sugar Cookies

Our next SCFCU holiday recipe comes from Jackie.  Jackie got this recipe many years ago from a dear friend, Pam, and has been using it ever since.  She claims this recipe is the best, most delicious one out there – and by the looks of the ingredients, she might be right!  With the help of fun and festive cookie cutters, Jackie makes these sugar cookies for all kinds of occasions – Thanksgiving, Christmas, the Superbowl, etc. YUM!

Cookie Ingredients:
2 c. Sugar
1 c. Butter – Really Softened, No Substitutes
2 Eggs
1 c. Sour Cream
1 tsp. Baking Soda
2 tsp. Lemon Extract
½ tsp. Salt
Add flour, enough to make a soft dough roll
(about 4-5 cups total).

Roll out dough on floured surface, then cut out shapes with cookie cutters. Bake cookies at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, or until the bottom is golden brown.

Frosting Ingredients:
½ pint Half & Half Cream
¼ c. butter
2-3 c. Powdered Sugar (adjust to taste preference)
Food Coloring (optional)

Melt half & half with butter, then add 2-3 cups powdered sugar.  Frosting may seem soupy at first, but will set overnight. *Tip: It is easiest to dip the top of cookies into frosting, for less mess.

These cookies are easy to make, and very festive…Jackie’s kids and family love them, and she hopes yours will too.
