Sour Cream Drop Cookies
Recipe type: Dessert
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick) softened (I used salted)
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • -cinnamon for top is optional-
  • -Glaze-
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, melted (I used salted)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. degrees.
  2. Cream butter & sugar together in mixing bowl with electric mixer. Add in egg one at a time & mix. Add vanilla & sour cream, mix until creamy. Add flour, salt, baking powder, & baking soda, mix well.
  3. Drop cookie dough onto ungreased cookie sheet by the spoonful about 2" apart. Sprinkle tops with cinnamon if desired.
  4. Bake 12 minutes or until edges are just starting to brown a little.
  5. Prepare warm glaze by melting the butter in bowl then stirring all the ingredients together until powdered sugar is dissolved. Drizzle over the top of warm cookies (if glaze thickens up in between batches put in the microwave to warm up again). You may need to add more milk/powdered sugar to reach the right consistency.
