Easter Cookies

So sorry for being absent and not posting in forever. I've been very busy with work. Not too busy to make Easter sugar cookies though. I got the cookie recipe from Picky Palate. She has an amazing collection of recipes that are very yummy.

Soft Perfect Sugar Cookies
by Picky Palate
  • 2 Cups sugar
  • 1 Cup butter, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Cup sour cream
  • 6 Cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

1. In an electric or stand mixer, cream the sugar and butter. Add eggs, vanilla and sour cream until well combined. Slowly add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until well combined.

2. In 2 batches, place in plastic wrap in a disc shape and chill for at least 2 hours for best results.

3. Once chilled, roll and cut into desired shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes depending on how thick you cut your cookies. Remove and let cool. Frost and decorate as desired.

For the frosting, I used royal icing in different colors.
