Original recipe yields 3 dozen



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in the egg and sour cream. Then stir in the baking soda and salt. Gradually add the flour until dough becomes too difficult to stir. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead in flour until dough is no longer sticky.
  3. Roll the dough out to 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 1/2 inches apart on unprepared cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies should be lightly browned at the edges. Remove from the baking sheets to cool on wire racks.

My family absolutely loves these cookies. I also had problems with the dough being sticky, but used a trick my grandmother taught me: I used powdered sugar instead of flour when rolling to keep the cookies sweet.



I always make these at Christmas. My daughter loves to help! They turn out so thick and soft. They are even better a few days after they're baked. I add an extra egg and 1 tsp. baking powder for fluffy, soft cookies. I also sometimes chill the dough before rolling and cutting out.



This recipe is very easy. It's nice not having to wait for dough to chill. I followed the recipe exactly and I had no trouble with sticky dough. Make sure you use softened butter and not melted butter. I also used a little powdered sugar instead of flour when I rolled them out. This cookie should only be used if you're going to ice your cookies because by itself, this cookie is extremely, extremely bland.
