Sugar and spice and everything nice, that’s what soft sugar cookies are made of. Sour cream is the ingredient to thank for these pillowy confections.

What You Need

1
cup  BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
1
tsp.  baking soda
1
cup  (2 sticks) butter, softened
1-1/2
cups  granulated sugar
2
 eggs
2
tsp.  ground nutmeg
1
tsp.  vanilla
4
cups  flour
1-1/2
cups  powdered sugar
2
Tbsp.  milk

Make It

MIX sour cream and baking soda; set aside. Beat butter and granulated sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs; mix well. Blend in nutmeg, vanilla and sour cream mixture. Gradually add flour, beating well after each addition. Refrigerate 30 min.

HEAT oven to 350ºF. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto greased baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 min. or just until centers are set and edges are lightly browned. Let stand on baking sheets 3 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.

MIX powdered sugar and milk until well blended; spread onto cookies. Let stand until frosting is firm.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
Tint frosting with food coloring before spreading onto cooled cookies. For added color, immediately sprinkle with colored sugar; let stand until frosting is firm.
Use Butter in Cookie Recipes
For best results, do not substitute margarine for the butter in cookie recipes as it will cause the dough to spread excessively on the baking sheet as the cookies bake.
How to Measure Dry Ingredients Precisely
To get exact level cup measures of dry ingredients, such as sugar, spoon sugar into dry metal or plastic measuring cup, then level by scraping excess sugar from top of cup with a straight-edged knife or metal spatula.
