Sugar Cookies

I made these with my girls last night and it is the most workable dough. I gave Brielle her own little ball and she played with it forever. Anyway, I have always been intimidated by sugar cookies, but this recipe is for everyone.

1 1/2 C sugar
1 c soft margarine
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 tsp nutmeg
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
4 c flour
3/4 c sour cream

Cream sugar and butter, stir in vanilla and eggs till fluffy. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl then add to the other bowl. Add sour cream and mix well. To roll out make sure you put flour on countertop and rolling pin so dough doesn't stick. I also just sprinkled a little on the top of the dough before I rolled it out. Place cut out cookies on cookie sheet, then bake @ 350 degrees for about 9-10 minutes. In my oven it worked out perfectly at 10, but all ovens vary so just watch them closely.

I never make sugar cookies because I don't like them flat and hard, but those look fluffy and soft! I totally want to make them now. I even have a cutter in the shape of a sleigh. Finni plays with it at church!! Time to make good on its real use!!

We made these for Baylee's birthday party. They were a hit. They were so easy and yummy to make. I've never made sugar cookies before and my kids had so much fun cutting shapes. Kept them busy for hours.
