Cooking: Swedish Sour Cream Cookies

Another favorite cookie recipe! This one made with sour cream is über delish with a slight zing from the sour cream. LOVE it! Somewhere I have the changes I made to this recipe to make it fat free. I looked, but haven’t found it yet. Nuts…


1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1-1/2 cups sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
5 to 6 cups all-purpose flour (enough for desired consistency for rolling)


Cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs, sour cream and vanilla. Mix in baking soda, baking powder and enough flour to create a consistency for rolling. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Roll out dough to a 1/4-to 3/8-inch thickness using a generous amount of flour. Cut out shapes and bake on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet for 8 minutes.

Cook on a wire rack.

Frost and decorate as desired.
