Christmas cookies

I found this recipe on Pinterest from Tammy at Peppermint Plum. I made these with one of my girlfriends this past weekend & they were delicious! And after couple glasses (or a bottle) of wine my kitchen looked like a flour hurricane came through. Caution: drink & bake at your own risk.

Anyway to the amazing soft, fluffy, buttery, melt in your mouth cookies. I'm making these for all of our family get togethers. They are amazing.

*Tammy says the trick is to roll them out thick & bake them for less time than you'd think.

What you'll need:
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
3 tsp. vanilla
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
5 1/2 cups flour

In mixer, cream butter and sugar, and then add eggs and vanilla. Add sour cream. Combine salt, soda, and flour, and add to mixture.

Then roll them out to 1/4 to 1/3 inch thick. Use a spatula & carefully transfer them to Pamed baking sheet...

Bake at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes. They will not look done. They will have absolutely NO brown on them. Leave them on the sheet for 5 minutes then move to cooling rack & decorate!

Here is the simple buttercream frosting I use:
1/2 cup butter, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4-1/3 cup milk

Cream butter then add sugar & vanilla till crumbly then slowly add milk until desired thickness.

Here is a not so flattering picture of the most delicious cookies.

Until Next Time-
