We got this recipe from Becoming Betty. This is one of the best Sugar cookie recipes that i have tasted. Go check them out. They have some delicious meals as well!!

P.S. a little tip: when decorating sugar cookies i like to put my frosting into a zip lock bag and cut a tiny whole in the corner and squeeze it out that way!

Have a fabulous weekend!!


  1. Sour cream is a must! I don't even know my recipes exist with out it. Maybe for those people who like Rock Hard cookies ;)

    These are so cute! I need to be better at my decorating.

    Good tip on using the zip lock bags.

  2. I must admit, I am in total envy of your cookies. I have been wanting to bake up some Valentine's sugar cookies for a while. But have yet to find the right frosting. Would love to give your cream cheese frosting a try. Thanks for sharing!
