Best-ever recipe for soft sugar cookies you can roll and cut out with cookie cutters! Easy to make, no chilling required, and they don’t spread into shapeless blobs as they bake. Made with a secret ingredient that gives them the most incredible flavor, and topped with a cool sour cream icing.

I already have 2 sugar cookie recipes on this site: one is for Cut-Out Cookies that Don’t Spread, and the other is for Soft & Chewy Sugar Cookies. I love them both for different reasons.
