Delicious they are.

Always pass on what you have learned.

When a photo of a baby Yoda cookie went viral, my son decided this was the cookie we needed to make for Christmas. Not only was it a blast baking with him, but we created our first videos together in the process. Enjoy!

Sour Cream Cookies

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine:

2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup cooking oil
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a separate bowl, combine:
2 cups unbleached wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Pour flour mixture into dough and stir together. Add enough additional flour (2 – 4 cups) to make a slightly sticky dough. Drop a portion of the dough onto a floured surface and roll out. Leave dough thicker for soft cookies and thinner for crispy.

Using an angel cookie cutter, cut shapes from the dough and place on a greased cookie sheet or parchment paper. Carefully trim the edges of the angel head from each cookie and round slightly.

Bake at 350F until lightly browned.


Iced with royal icing.
