Cookie of The Week

This week we made out traditional sugar cookie recipe. We make and decorate these cookies for several holidays during the year. Then we share them with neighbors! You will see in these pictures that Morgan is still happy to be in the pictures and all that good stuff. But Chad will not. He will help cut, roll and decorate! He will not allow himself to be in the pictures doing any of these things. Although making bunny ears behind his sister is still OK in his mind. This is one of those traditions that I kind of dread because of the time and mess. In the end I am thankful for the tradition. I am thankful for the time spent together, the jokes, the laughter, even the mess!

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies
1 Cup butter at room temperature
2 Cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 Cup sour cream
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6-8 Cups flour

Cream together the first 4 ingredients. Add the next 3 then add one cup of flour at a time until it makes a soft dough. Refrigerate for at least an hour. Roll out and cut into lovely shapes!! Bake at 250 for 7-9 minutes. I use store bought frosting because I am lazy, but you could make some too!! Enjoy!

We have the same tradition at Christmas time & I've been doing it since I was a kid. I sometimes dread it now, too, with all the mess, but it's all worth it when you have all the kids together in the same room & they're all happy! I think that's why my mom kept doing it every year. . . .:)
