Day 1: Make sugar cookie dough & refrigerate overnight. I use my Momma's recipe for sugar cookies cause it's got sour cream in it. Sour cream makes everything better!
Sour Cream Sugar Cookies
Yields 2-3 dozen according to Momma, but I did HALF this recipe and got 41 cars & trucks.
2 sticks of unsalted butter @ room temp.
1 C shortening
3 C sugar
1 tsp salt
Cream butter; add shortening, sugar & salt. Cream again. Add remaining ingredients:
6 heaping Tbsp sour cream
4 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
7 C flour (add slowly)
For best results, cover dough in bowl & refrigerate overnight.
Day 2: Use flour on counter & rolling pin when rolling out dough. Roll out dough to about 1/4" thick and use favorite cookie cutters. Transfer your shapes to an un-greased baking sheet, use one of these babies to help ya:
