Marlene's Sour Cream Cookies - Rolled Version


   My Aunt Marlene would never claim to be a cook.  In fact, she often claims just the opposite.  However, I have never once been to her house and had there be a lack of yummy treats.  So really she just sells herself short!  I remember her making these for us when we were kids.  We had never had sour cream cookies before and we loved them! She usually made them as drop cookies. She would cover them in a yummy icing (cream cheese if I remember correctly) and they were yummy balls of deliciousness!


    Marlene got this recipe from her brother-in-law Mark's mom and nobody who has tried them hasn't liked them.  When I asked her for the recipe, she did one better.  She brought a batch with her when she came to visit.  This batch was rolled, cut and decorated and super cute!  They are softer than a regular sugar cookie and I find them a little harder to roll, but they take well to shapes.  Jax needed something to bring for Valentine's Day at daycare.  He also needed a treat to bring his betrothed!  So, I thought this would be a perfect time to make these cookies.


Decorated Sour Cream Cookies and Chocolate Sour Cream Cookies for Jax's Valentines when he was just a little tike.


    Last year we made Peanut Butter Blossoms with heart chocolates and they were perfect.  This year he wanted sprinkle cookies. So, we went back to the original valentines cookies and made these beauties.  A couple of years ago I frosted them with Royal Icing.  This year we went with Crusting Buttercream and of course plenty of sprinkles!


Marlene's Sour Cream Cookies

Ingredients:

2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, softenend
3 eggs
1 cup sour cream
2 tsp vanilla
4 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
Jax's Valentines for his friends!

  1. Cream together sugar and butter.  Mix in eggs, sour cream and vanilla.
  2. In a bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
  3. Add dry mixture to wet mixture and stir until just incorporated.  The dough will be soft.
  4. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours.  Roll out on a well floured surface and cut into desired shapes.  Bake at 350 F for 5-10 minutes depending on size of cookies.

    1. Hehe! He gave our friends' daughter a ring when she was just a few weeks old. Of course he was only 1... so who knows if it will stand the test of time. But right now she is his best friend and I keep telling her parents to work on the dowry! ;-) He gave her and her mom cookies today, so he is staying in her good graces!

    1. She is pretty lucky. He is good in the kitchen and his daddy as taught him a lot about tools as well. He's going to be quite the catch! I'm sure he would have loved sharing these with you too, if only you were closer. He enjoyed passing them out!

  18. Carlee, these look absolutely delicious, I love a buttercream frosted cookie. But they are adorable too. I'm sure that Jax's betrothed was delighted with her gift. LOL he's starting early isn't he? I bet the girls will be flocking to him for not only his good looks, but his baking skills!

    1. He is definitely going to be a catch. He knows how to cook, but also knows his way around the workshop. If you misidentify a tractor, you are sure to hear about it too! He is quite the well rounded three year old. And his betrothed and her mommy liked the cookies, so he is in pretty good shape!
