Easter Sugar Cookies!

Sorry I have been missing!  My computer caught a virus and had to be sent to the repair shop, so for a whole week I have been without my computer!

So, these cookies are absolutely, hands down the best cookies!  They are a sour cream sugar cookie topped with a brown butter icing!  They may not be the healthiest for you, but when eating cookies - who is really concerned about being healthy? Not me!

Here is the recipe:

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies
1/2 C. Shortening (I used butter)
1 1/2 C. Sugar
2 Eggs
1 C. Sour Cream
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 3/4 C. Flour
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
DIRECTIONS:  Cream shortening, eggs & sugar together.  Once combined, add sour cream and vanilla.  Mix.  Add dry ingredients.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill overnight in the fridge.  Once chilled, preheat oven to 350.  Drop by tablespoon on greased cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes.  Keep remaining dough covered and in fridge while other cookies are baking.  When cool, spread with brown butter icing.

Brown Butter Icing
8 Tbsp. butter, browned (to brown butter, melt over low-medium heat; continue heating until the butter starts turning a light brown color)
4 C. Powdered Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
4 Tbsp. Milk
DIRECTIONS:  Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Mix until smooth.
