Egg-free cutout sugar cookies
I already have a cream-cheese basef egg-free cut-out cookie that tastes great. The appeal, though, of less-expensive sour cream - I use so much I buy it in five-pound vats - convinced me to run a test.
I'm glad I did, because this is by far the sturdiest cut-out cookie dough I've ever worked with - and this is coming from someone with a long trail of decapitated angels in her wake. It rolled easily and I didn't have to add a lot of flour to prevent sticking.
The naked cookie - oh, dear but the spammers are going to have a blast with that phrase - isn't as tasty as the cream-cheese version. But since the guys require an inch of icing and two inches of sprinkles on cut-out cookies, no one will ever notice.
Egg-free sugar cookies
- 2 1/2 c. flour
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 c. butter or margarine
- 3/4 c. sugar
- 1/2 c. sour cream
Combine dry ingredients. Cream butter and sugar. Blend in sour cream, then add dry ingredients. Chill for two hours. Roll dough to a quarter-inch thick. Bake on greased sheet at 350 degrees for eight to 10 minutes - mine took 14 minutes on Air Bake.
I wouldn't recommend re-rolling this dough more than once. I tried twice - I can usually get away with it - and the last round seemed tough.
