Sour Cream Cookies

 This is a family recipe. I am sure man others have a similar one in their family. My Grandma and Mom have always made these for holidays or special occasions. My Grandma passed away the end of 2013, but I always remember her when I make these cookies. She used to change the recipe up every so often - adding lemon grind or using more almond extract than vanilla. But this is the basic recipe my Mom always uses and I suggest you play around with the flavors. 

This recipe is good anytime you are wanting a sweet treat. They are my favorite cookie.

Sour Cream Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 cup sour cream

3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp cream or half and half
Optional: Sprinkles such as pastel colored sugar to sprinkle on top

Preheat Oven to 350. Mix flour, baking soda and powder in a bowl and set aside. In a large bowl cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs and extracts. Stir in sour cream. And then slowly add flour mixture until all added in. Drop cookies on a cookie sheet and bake 8 to 12 minutes. Cool.  Glaze cookies and let the glaze set for an hour. Store in an airtight container.
