Best Sugar Cookie Dough Recipe EVER!
I've tried many, many sugar cookie dough recipes, but none compares to this recipe I found last year in the Thanksgiving Point December newsletter. So delicious! If you make these let me know how they turned out!
The Famous Emporium Kitchen Sugar Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup sour cream
3 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Cream the butter and sugar together in a large mixer bowl set on medium speed. Add the egg, vanilla, almond extract and sour cream and continue mixing until blended well. Scrape the sides of the mixing bowl if necessary.
Add dry ingredients slowly to the cookie dough, mixing until thoroughly combined. Mixture should become a ball in the mixer. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface. Roll until cookie dough is 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out cookies in with cookie cutters and place on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until done. Remove from oven and allow the cookies to cool on a wire rack before frosting. Frost each cookie with thinned buttercream frosting.
