Get started!



2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1/4 cup sour cream

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon lemon extract


1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 teaspoon shortening

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine 1 cup flour and all remaining cookie ingredients in bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in remaining 1 cup flour.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough in half. Shape each into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Roll out dough on well floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2 to 3-inch star cookie cutters into desired shapes. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets; sprinkle with decorator sugars. Bake 8-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely. Place onto waxed paper. Repeat with remaining dough.

  5. STEP 5

    Melt chocolate chips and shortening in saucepan, over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted. Drizzle over cookies.

Variation: Sour Cream Cut-Outs: Omit lemon extract; increase vanilla to 1 teaspoon. Cut out dough with assorted cookie cutters into desired shapes. Bake as directed above. Frost and decorate as desired.
