Light and fluffy Sugar Cookie recipe

Ingard here~

A dear friend (Marcee) shared a recipe that totally reminds me of

a certain frosted sugar cookie sold in retail stores that is also light and fluffy.

I am sharing this recipe with all of you.

Here is what to do and what you will need:

½ cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar

Cream with a mixer (or by hand) until light and fluffy

Add 1 egg, mix well.

Add 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional: ½ teaspoon almond extract as well~ I didn’t use almond but it is very good with it).

Add ½ cup sour cream (I use light sour cream), blend well.

Now for the dry ingredients:

2  and ²/3  cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Mix into the wet ingredients. Once you have all those ingredients mixed up,
place a large dollop on a floured surface.
This dough is very wet and soft, I kneaded in some additional flour right from my floured surface and then
rolled out the dough to ¼ to ¹/3 inch thick.

use floured cookie cutters to cut dough into shapes (you might need to repeat dipping the cutters into flour once you begin to cut the shapes, as the dough is very wet).

Place your shapes on a cookie sheet (I like to line mine with parchment paper).

You can use a turning spatula that is floured to ease these off your surface.

Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes

Test for doneness by lightly touching the top of the cookie if an impression is made with your finger then cook 2 minutes longer.

These cookies are VERY tender, fluffy and purposely only very lightly browned.

You can frost or leave plain.
