Are you looking for that perfect, last minute Halloween treat to make? I came across these adorable sugar cookies on a fun blog that I follow. Tina over at Mommy’s Kitchen had them as a feature on her site this month.
3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour, sift before measuring
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ sup butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
½ cup sour cream
Into a bowl, sift together the sifted flour, baking soda, and salt. In a mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla with an electric mixer. Beat for 2 minutes. Add sour cream and half of the sifted dry ingredients; beat 1 minute. Stir in remaining dry ingredients with a wooden spoon. Divide dough in thirds. Add orange food coloring to one of the portions, and yellow to another.
Next, press the orange dough on top of the yellow dough.
Then press the plain white dough on top. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Pull the dough out of the baking dish, and cut into ¼ inch thick slices.
