Soft Sugar Cookies

I love sugar cookies – love them and it seems like Christmas is always the perfect time to make them! Which is actually a good things since making and eating these all year long would surly take away from my “eat healthy” resolution that I make every year!! haha!

Here is my recipe for super yummy and super soft (perfect!) sugar cookies – I have no idea where I got this recipe but I have been making them for years and still love it just as much!

SUGAR COOKIES:

1 cup shortening
2 cups sugar
3 egg whites
2 tsp. vanilla

Beat Well.

Add 1 cup light or fat free sour cream

Mix.

Add:
6 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teas. salt
1/2 teas, baking soda

Roll about 1/4 inch thick – cut our your shapes and bake at 400 for 7-9 minutes (depending on your oven)

and of course – no sugar cookie would be complete with out frosting!

BUTTERCREAM FROSTING:

1 c. shortening
1 c. softened butter
8 cups powdered sugar
4 Tbl. milk
2 teas. vanilla

cream shortening and butter together, add sugar, milk and vanilla
blend until mixed well.

Frosting can be stored in fridge for two weeks!

Enjoy!!
Now I am off to finish eating mine!

I love soft sugar cookies. I make them for Christmas time too. It is hard to not eat them when they are in the house. These look delicious.

I've been wanting to find a good recipe for "soft" sugar cookies, and these look perfect! I like making sugar cookies in almost every season. The frosting here looks delicious, too! I can't wait to try out this recipe!
I found you on Chef in Training's linksy party. :)
Merry Christmas
