Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

INGREDIENTS
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
PREPARATION
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and lightly grease or line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar together with an electric mixer until well combined. Mix in eggs and vanilla until thoroughly incorporated.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg (if using). Add dry ingredients to the sugar/butter mixture, alternating with the sour cream, mixing well after each addition.
  4. Flatten dough into a disc, cover in plastic wrap, and chill for about one hour. (You can skip this step if needed, but it helps make the cookies fluffier.)
  5. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface and cut into desired shapes. Place onto prepared baking sheet and cook until lightly golden, about 7 minutes for soft cookies, 10 minutes for crispier cookies.
  6. Let cookies cool on a wire rack and decorate with you favorite frosting. Enjoy!
