With Valentines Day coming up I thought it would be fun to make cookies with the boys. My mom gave me this huge house cookie cutter and it reminded me of my favorite songs "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. You can listen to it HERE.
I used my grandma's yummy sour cream sugar cookie recipe. These cookies are so addicting!
You will need:
* 2 cups sugar
* 3 cups flour
* 2 eggs
* 1 cup sour cream
* 1 cup butter
* 1 tsp. baking soda
1. Mix all ingredients and if you feel the dough is too sticky add a cup at a time until it is the consistency you like. I usually add around 5.
2. Flour breadboard and use cookie cutters or roll into balls for baking.
3. Bake at 350 degrees until slightly brown around the edges. They will be soft when you take them out but will firm up while they cool.
I cut a heart shape out of the middle of the house cookie and filled it with 4 of these hard candies. When melted they formed the heart shape.
We made other regular cookies as well that Dylan sprinkled with pink, red and clear candies, but this home cookie was my favorite.
