Happy Valentine's Day!

Julianne gave me this sugar cookie recipe that I just loved (after helping myself to her cookies) so I tried it out last night when I made these Valentine's Day cookies. I thought I'd share the recipe - it's very light and fluffy!

Farm House Sugar Cookies:

Cream Together:

2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sour cream
4.5 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt.

Roll out 1/4 inch thick on floured surface. Use open cookie cutter. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Shouldn't brown around edges. Ice while warm.

I opted out for icing and used sugar instead. An easy way to add colour to your cookies without icing is to add some sugar to a ziplock bag, add a few drops of colour of your choice and then use the bag to work the colouring into the sugar.
