Love & Sugar Cookies

Sending love this Valentine’s week! Hope you are feeling love sprinkled over your life like a yummy heart-shaped sugar cookie!

And, speaking of sugar cookies….here is my favorite sugar cookie recipe EVER, courtesy of my dear friend, Jenn!

2 cups sugar
1 cup margarine
1 cup sour cream
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
6 – 8 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Cream together the sugar and margarine. Add the sour cream, eggs and vanilla. Add 3 cups flour, baking soda and salt. Add 3 -5 additional cups of flour to make a soft dough. Roll out to 1/4″ thick (or a little more).  Bake at 350 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes.

This makes A LOT of cookies. If you are just making them for your family, half the recipe. I like to frost them with a cream cheese frosting. You’ll need to double the frosting recipe if you are making the full batch of dough.

Cream cheese frosting:
1 8oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1 tbl milk
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar

Beat cream cheese, milk and vanilla together. Gradually add powdered sugar, one cup at a time, until smooth and of spreading consistency.

Hugs, Happy Baking, and Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!!
