Sugar Cookie Recipe

This is the sugar cookie recipe I'm using as of now. Especially the chocolate variation! I got this from Cookie Crazie and I absolute love it!

1-1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
1 egg
4 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Here's how I do mine:

Cream together butter and sugar. Add sour cream, egg and vanilla. Mix well. In another bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Combine. Roll out to 1/2 - 5/8" thick, depending on how thick you want your cookies. Cut into desired shapes. Place on ungreased cookie sheet 1" apart. Place cookie sheet with cookies in freezer for at least 10 minutes. Remove from freezer, making sure cookies don't slide together, and place in 325 degree preheated oven. Bake for 14 - 18 minutes, depending on your oven and how you like your cookies. I don't like my cookies the least bit crunchy, so I take them out sooner rather than later.

For the chocolate variation, substitute 1/2 cup of the flour with 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder. You can use regular cocoa, but one you try the dark, you will never go back to the regular!!

Hope you love it as much as I do!
