My favorite time of the year (throws leaves in the air) is here! It’s that time when the once brisk breeze now tickles your nose with pumpkin spice, elongated sighs of coziness become a daily ritual, and raking leaves are an excuse to enjoy colorful foliage. Either way, I’m onto the next cookie recipe of our 8 weeks of Sugar Cookie Experimenting. Our first recipe was nostalgic and holiday-ish with my Grandma DeMayo’s sugar cookie. This week I had goals of a softer, fluffier, maybe cake-ier cookie. Others have told me they soften their dough up with sour cream, so I went hunting for a reasonable recipe that wasn’t too intricate.
I discovered the sour cream dream from The Recipe Rebel, having baked a few of her homemades before. I guess this one practically falls in the Holiday Cookie category since she claims it to be “Your Freezer Friendly Holiday Cookie.” However, I was curiouser and still curiouser of the outcome all the same.
Here now I can focus on the results of my 5 key points as stated in my first blog entry guidelines.
Everyone loved these cookies more than I did. Maybe I’m crazy. (Crazy for cookies?). I was happy they were a hit! I wouldn’t find this recipe conducive to time elements in terms of rolling and baking due to its mushy and sticky consistency. However, if you want a cookie that tastes and feels like cake….this is definitely your go-to.
Next week I’ll embark on a completely new recipe to taste and gain feedback on. My live taste testers are actually looking forward to the next batch.
Meanwhile…..Bake on Bookies,
