sugar cookies...

I love love love heart shaped sugar cookies at valentines (or any other time) but I am always wondering how to make them soft and chewy. Mine always seem to be crunchy. Anyone got any good recipes?



these ones are crochet and very cute, find them at this etsy shop.

Hey this is Liz Jenni's friend in Kailua.

Here's mine. You have to make sure they don't cook too long or they get hard.

Sugar Cookies
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
5 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Cream the butter and sugar, add the eggs, sour cream and vanilla.
Add the sifted dry ingredients, mixing just until incorporated.
Let the dough rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour, then roll out on a floured surface.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
Makes 4 dozen medium sized cookies
