  • Summary

    This Sour Cream Cookies recipe is one of my favorites! It's not overly sweet and has a delicious cake-like texture. I love baking these, not only at Christmas and the holidays but all year around. Make these treats for your family and friends right away- they will definitely become one of your favorite desserts!

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup of butter(the original recipe calls for margarine, but that's just not how I roll)
    • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 cup of sour cream
    • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    • 1 tsp. of baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp. of baking powder
    • 1 pinch of salt
    • 4 cups of flour
    • 1 1/2 cups of chopped walnuts (optional, I've never actually had these cookies with nuts in all of my 31 years eating them)
    • 1 1/2 cups of confectioner's sugar
    • 1 Tbsp. of lemon juice (you could always sub lemon extract but maybe start with less and taste it before you add more)
    • 1 or 2 Tbsp. of water
    • Sprinkles (optional)
