Sour Cream Sugar Cookies V

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2004
This sugar cookie is what the description claims it is. It is soft, puffs up, and has cake-like texture. I am giving it a five because I have tried over six different recipes in attempt to find one that would produce a puffy cookie similiar to the big thick sugar cookies commonly sold at grocercy store bakeries. While this cookie is a little lighter than the bakery cookie, it is very close. Also, the dough rolled out fine (it sat 2 hours in the freezer and I used plenty of flour to roll it out). After cutting out my cookies, I placed them in the freezer for an additional 7 minutes. They held their shape beautifully and had optimal height. Note: I did decrease the sour cream from 2 cups to 1 2/3 cups.

Great Grandad's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2004
This recipe doesn't puff up. I made this recipe three times. The first time I follow it exactly, and it spread out. It was chewy, and had poor flavor. Then I went out and bought new flour, buttermilk, baking soda, and baking powder -- same result. On another attempt I added nearly two cups of additional flour. This time it did indeed puff up. However, the extra flour made the flavor too bread-like. I'm still searching for a recipe that will look and taste like the cookies sold at grocery store bakeries.
