Sour Cream Cookie Recipe

I am taking part in a circle recipe swap. So I decided to make the layout correspond with the circle recipe contest. This fits the requirements of A title, 3 buttons, 2 cricut cuts. Hope you like and wish me luck! Mama needs a cricut cake =) This layout actually has a pocket so you can pull out the recipe. It has the cookie recipe on one side and the frosting recipe on the other.

I have added the recipe to share at the bottom of this post.  Enjoy!

Sour Cream Cookies
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cook for 10 minutes. Cream shortening & sugar. Add salt, vanilla, eggs & beat well. Add sour cream alternately with sifting dry ingredients. I do 1 cup flour, ¼ teaspoon of baking powder & soda vs. 1/4 cup sour cream. Do this 4 times. Chill dough thoroughly. Roll dough flat and cut out with cookie cutters.


  • ¼ cup melted shortening
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • Milk
  • Food coloring if desired


Mix shortening, powdered sugar and vanilla. Using an electric mixer, add enough milk to give the consistency you want. If you add too much milk, add a little more sugar. Add food coloring if desired to make the cookies festive.

Crazy Delicious

My hubby and I went to San Francisco and found the most amazing restaurant for breakfast, Mama's on Washington. The breakfast there is amazing and apparently everyone in the city already knew it because you had to wait a minimum of an hour to eat. We met some great people in line and the wait was well worth it.

A Day at the Aquarium

My family and I went to the aquarium of the pacific on Labor Day. We had a great time. For this project I used the pack your bags cartridge and Bo Bunny Double Dotted Paper that I am truly obsessed with.
