Cut-out Sugar Cookies

1 ½ cups sugar

2 sticks margarine

1 egg

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. vanilla

½ cup sour cream

3 cup flour (maybe more)

Frosting:   3 – 4 Tbsp. butter

Milk and powdered sugar (as needed for desired consistency)


Combine and mix all ingredients (except sour cream and flour).  Add sour cream to mixture.  Add flour in small amounts until dough can be formed into a ball.  Refrigerate for 1 hour.  Using a small amount at a time, roll out the dough and cut out the desired shapes.  Bake 350 F. for 5 – 8 minutes.  (Temperature may vary, so make sure they don’t get too brown.)  Cool on rack.

Frosting:   Melt butter.  Add powdered sugar slowly to milk making sure frosting isn’t too loose.  Add melted butter.  Add more sugar and milk, depending on how much you need, until frosting is creamy.  Food coloring may be added to frosting for variety.  Spread with a knife.  Let dry for a few hours.

(Recipe for the Cut-out Sugar Cookies recipe was in the Greco Family “Cook”Book, Karen Bennett, 1998.)
