Old Fashioned Sour Cream Cookies

Old Fashioned Sour Cream Cookies is one of my favorite recipes each Christmas, compliments of a sweet friend from college who listened to me obsess over Stud when we first started dating and could always make me laugh until the point of tears!

These chewy, delicious cookies are totally cute cut into shapes and decorated with frosting!  (My only advice beyond the recipe is…wrap a portion of the dough and keep it unbaked in the refrigerate to munch on later…I know eating raw cookie dough is bad, but it’s an addiction I’m not willing to stop.)

    I so enjoy your recipes and your blog. You are wonderful to take the time to share with others. Am wondering if anyone else has a problem printing your recipes…the type is so light that it is unreadable. It is not the ink in my printer because all other copies print dark and clear. I must copy and paste elsewhere to get a dark print.
