“Ooh!!!! You should never ever ever in a million years share this recipe with a single soul because then you can be the queen of (fill in the blank) making and everyone will think you’re fabulous and envy your baking skills and wish they were you!”
Well…this is one of those recipes but I told that sneaky little voice to hit the road!
This here Sugar Cookie recipe is the BEST! My dear friend Aspen shared this with me 4 years ago and ever since I’ve been so loyal to it I can’t bare to try another! They are moist and Soft and the perfect dough for any holiday! Cookie Cutters turn them into the perfect Halloween Bats! Best Ever Spring time Flower and of course the best heart shaped Valentine treat!
Best Ever Sugar Cookie
Blend together until smooth:
1 1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Cup melted Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Cup Sour Cream
Combined in separate bowl:
5 Cups Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- Add dry ingredients to wet and mix until combined.
- Make a ball out of the dough and wrap in plastic wrap. Store in the fridge 2-3 hours or until firm. Over night works well too.
- Once dough is firm roll out a portion of the dough onto a floured surface. You want the dough thick. I roll mine out to be about 1/3″ thick!
- Cut with cookie cutters and place on greases cookie sheet.
- Back at 375 for 10-12 min. You don’t want them golden brown. They will be the same shade as the uncooked dough.
To make the perfect glossy and smooth frosting simply warm in your Microwave a can of Strawberry Frosting for about 30 seconds. Stir it and warm it longer until it’s soupy. Dip your cooled cookies face down into the frosting and let the excess frosting drip off. Add Sprinkles right away so they can stick well. When the frosting cools it dries smooth!
My girls have been saving their money to buy their first pet! I told them if they could save half we’d go pick out their frogs! So guess who set up shop and sold these bad boys?
Meet Sally and Coco! I’m the farthest thing from a pet person! But these sweet little Frogs were hard to resist. You only feed them twice a week and clean their tank twice a year! I can handle that! If you’re looking for a low key pet be sure to check them out at Brookstone. It’s called a Frog-O-Sphere! Funny huh! They come complete with a years worth of food and already in their tank swimming around. Doesn’t get easier then that!
My girls are in heaven… This should buy me a year or so of them asking for a puppy right!
