For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

Well, I hope that a Happy Thanksgiving was enjoyed by all those in the States today. We will be celebrating the with the “Family” on Saturday so we just had a small quiet dinner at Sujomi household. HH made a ham, garlic mashed potatoes and a wilted slaw (all very tasty – especially because I didn’t have to cook!) and I made pumpkin pie for dessert. Heck, I even got out the wedding china.
I made these cookies last night and the kids helped ice them this evening. These will be coming with us on Saturday to Dad’s house. A funny thing about these cookies, they are called “Sour Cream Sugar Cookies”. My dad hates sour cream. He even jokes that he doesn’t like anyone who likes sour cream, but these are his favorite cookies! He prefers them un-iced and I made sure that I have a container of those just for him. If you like a not-too-sweet cookie, then you should enjoy these.
Sour Cream Sugar Cookies
In a medium bowl, sift together:
3-1/4 cups of flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Then, in a mixer combine:
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Beat for 2 minutes, then blend in 1/2 cup sour cream. Change your attachment to a dough hook and slowly add the flour mixture.
Roll and cut out with cookie cutters.
Bake at 425 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Cool on wire rack.
Ice as desired.
