this is the BEST Soft Sugar Cookie Recipe ever. They are the go-to cookie in our home when we need to make holiday cut out cookies.
SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE
Have mentioned before my LOVE for all things cookies? I have shared several cookie recipes here on The Idea Room over the years…and this is one of my favorites! They are made with sour cream. This sugar cookie recipe is the perfect cookie when you need to make cut out shapes. They don’t spread and hold their shape really well.
These cookies are fun because you can add any flavor of frosting that you want. It tastes great with Chocolate frosting, Vanilla frosting or more flavored frostings like Peppermint Buttercream Frosting.
SOFT SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE
These cookies are so easy to freeze. You can make them ahead of time and freeze a large batch of them to frost for later. You can also freeze the dough. Just set it out on the counter and let it thaw before rolling it out to cut the shapes later.
