Old-Fashioned Sour Cream Cookies & a Giveaway!

| contests/giveaways, cookies, guest post, recipes

These’s something special about a simple cookie – the flavors just seem to shine through without any fuss.  These Old-Fashioned Sour Cream Cookies are just that… simply delicious. Old-Fashioned Sour Cream Cookies | JavaCupcake.com #BringtheCOOKIES You may be tired of hearing about it by now, but I am obsessed with the 1963 Betty Crocker Cooky Book.  Seriously.   This book is like my cookie bible and this year I decided to do some serious bible study.  This will be the 6th cookie I’ve made from my cookie bible this year!  And I’m absolutely positive I will be making even more!

These Old-Fashioned Sour Cream Cookies caught my attention because of their simplicity and appearance.  Perfectly round cookies with a dusting of sugar on the top stacked together made such a pretty presentation.   I knew I had to make them.

Since there are so few ingredients in this recipe, I knew they’d be simple to make.  What I didn’t realize, until after I tasted them, how delicious they would be.  These little cookies might be simple on the outside, but their flavor is undeniable.   Full of rich, sour cream flavor with a hint of nutmeg, these cookies are amazing on their own… but they’re even better dunked in coffee or a hot cup of tea.  The perfect mid-morning treat.

To get the recipe for these cookies, head over to In Katrina’s Kitchen!

A new cookie recipe every day in December- a virtual blogger cookie swap!

A big THANK YOU to Katrina for inviting me to be a part of “I’ll bring the COOKIES!”  I had a lot of fun making these and even more fun exploring all the other cookies in the series!

Enjoy!
