Recipes: 3 Five Star Sugar Cookie Recipes



Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies
"A soft, chewy, and flavorful sugar cookie. It is very important to chill the dough,
as it is too sticky to roll unless well chilled."
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1.In a large bowl, combine the sugar, butter, cream cheese,
   salt, almond and vanilla extracts, and egg yolk. Beat until smooth.
   Stir in flour until well blended. Chill the dough for 8 hours, or overnight.
2.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
3.On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough 1/3 at a time to 1/8 inch thickness,
   refrigerating remaining dough until ready to use. Cut into desired shapes with lightly
   floured cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Leave cookies
   plain for frosting, or brush with slightly beaten egg white and sprinkle with candy sprinkles or colored sugar.
4.Bake for 7 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until light and golden brown.
   Cool cookies completely before frosting.
 
Sour Cream Sugar Cookies
The silken texture and melt in your mouth goodness of these cookies come
from sour cream.
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
2 1 4 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream
In large bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, and salt until blended.
In separate large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat butter
and 2 cups sugar until combined. Reduce speed to low then
beat in egg and vanilla until blended. Beat in sour cream.
Beat in flour mixture until combined, scraping bowl occasionally with rubber spatula.
Divide dough in half, then shape each half into 4 balls then flatten balls slightly.
Wrap each ball in waxed paper and refrigerate at least 2 hours, or overnight, until dough is
firm enough to roll. (If using margarine, refrigerate overnight.)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
On lightly floured surface, with floured rolling pin,
roll 1 piece of dough 1/8" thick. Keep remaining dough refrigerated.
With floured 2" cookie cutters, cut as many cookies as possible and reserve trimmings.
Place cookies, about 1/2" apart, on ungreased large cookie sheets.
Sprinkle with some of remaining 1/4 cup sugar.
Bake 8 minutes. With wide spatula, transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
Repeat with remaining dough, trimmings, and sugar.
