Great Grandad's Sugar Cookies
December 18, 2001

I have been searching for a sugar cookie recipe that would produce a soft cookie that was easy to decorate--this is it! It made 85 cookies because sometimes I rolled the dough thinner. The nutmeg gives it the perfect kick. I used 1 cup sour cream instead of sour milk. I frosted them with "Buttercream Icing" from this site and they turned out perfect. I stored about half of the cookies in a Rubbermaid container for several days and they were still fresh, same with the frosting...Try it!
