i have the best job ever as a stay at home mommy to three handsome young men...thanks to my hard working husband! after a full day with my boys (which i love) i can't wait for my hubby to get home so we can all sit around the table for dinner. it's a very special time for our family so i try to keep it fun and unpredictable! that is why i am on a mission to find new recipes, tweak old ones and share them with YOU!

frosted sour cream cookies

oh my goodness gracious are these cookies good!  they will melt in your mouth!  they are by far my new favorite cookie.  and a plus, they are quick and easy!  they are perfect cookies for freezing too!  enjoy!

1/2 c. butter
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 c. flour
1 c. sour cream
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla

cream butter and sugar; beat in eggs and vanilla.  add dry ingredients and sour cream and mix.  drop (i use a cookie scoop) on a greased cookie sheet.  bake at 350 degrees until center is done (approximately 15 min). 


1/2 c. butter, melted/browned
3 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 T. hot water (i usually have to add more to get it to the consistency that i want!)

beat ingredients together and frost cookies while the frosting is warm.  if the frosting sets up before you are done, heat it in the microwave a few seconds or over hot water.  if too thin, add more powdered sugar!
