Welcome to these delicious, old-fashion cookies—sometimes called sour cream softies and sour cream drops, these cookies will wow you with the first soft, sweet bite.

Sour Cream Cookies


1/2 cup butter

1 1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup sour cream

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon soda

3 cups of flour


Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs and vanilla. In separate dish combine dry ingredients (salt, baking powder, soda, flour). Add sour cream alternately with dry ingredient mixture. Drop onto cookie sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if desired. Bake at 400 for 12 minutes.

Icing: 2 Tablespoons browned butter (melted and then just a bit burnt), 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 Tablespoon hot water. Mix together until smooth icing forms, adding more powdered sugar if needed.

Spread icing on cooled cookies if desired.


I personally couldn’t decide if I wanted cinnamon sugar on top or icing. So I went with both. Both is always a good decision. (Unless you’re deciding between two love interests, then both is a decision that will only end poorly.)

There is nothing healthy about this cookies, but I don’t believe in skimping on desserts. Plan for it, ENJOY it, and move on!

  1. Browned butter icing – with the butter slightly “burned” prior to adding the rest of the ingredients – is heavenly.
