SOUR CREAM SUGAR COOKIES
featured in "The Peaceful Season"
This Schermann family special recipe is actually a holiday favorite of mine. My paternal great-grandmother always made these at Christmas. The special ingredient is sour cream. While these make tasty cutout cookies, you can also roll the dough in balls and flatten them for no-fuss baking.
