Cinnamon Sour Cream Cookies
"An Italian Cookie Recipe with a twist"
These cinnamon sour cream cookies are a lot like a sugar cookie in texture and flavor.
The big difference is added sour cream and cinnamon. Personally I could use a little more of a sour cream flavor. But I have yet to find the exact ratio to get what I want. So I posted it EXACTLY how I've been making it.
Have you ever had a cook book that just seems to do no wrong? Well this little cook book I found in Wal Mart 20 years ago is that way. Fiddle around with it - see what you get.
This sour cream cookie probably has a few things that can be substituted. See substitutions and FAQs for some ideas.
If this wasn't the type of sour cream cookie recipe you were looking for - see my caramel cookie recipe - it calls for sour cream. Too, scroll below and see the whole list of Italian Cookie Recipes I have on my site.

Cinnamon Sour Cream Cookies
1/2 cup butter at room temperature
1/2 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 large egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups of flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* Preheat oven to 350 degrees
* Cream butter, sugar, and sour cream in large bowl.
* Beat in egg yolk and then vanilla.
* Add remaining ingredients just until combined.
* Roll dough until 1/4 inch thick. I sandwich between two pieces of wax paper! If needed, chill dough while you clean up. Sometimes chilled dough is easier to work with.
* Cut into desired shape with cookie cutters.
* Place 1 inch apart on UNGREASED cookie sheet. Sprinkle tops with sugar if you wish.
* Bake for 8-10 minutes. JUST UNTIL set and edges are lightly golden.

Can shortening in place of the butter?
Nope! The butter sour cream combo really flavors the cookie. Even a butter shortening can't capture this.
Can I add nuts?
You *can*, but again - this is about the cinnamon sour cream flavor. Nuts may become too dominant if you add them.
What happens if I leave out the cinnamon?
Nothing. They just taste incredibly boring - like a basic sour cream cookie.

Labor Day Is Coming Up!
It's still so hot, it's hard to get excited about cranking up the over. So - there are a couple of NO BAKE stand-by's I use:
Strawberry and Marsala
Amaretto Mouse Cheesecake
The big word is NO BAKE.
And then, there's always my Italian Drinks collection to make a party unique and festive.
Whatever you choose for Labor Day, keep it cool. Keep it simple. And keep it safe!
