Strawberries and Cream Sugar Cookies
Who’s extremely happy that it’s summertime? Having three little boys at home I have mixed feelings about summertime. I absolutely love sleeping in, not having to pack lunches and there is no homework! However, it also means that my grocery bill goes up to keep a constant supply of snacks and popsicles on hand, trying to keep them entertained, and my house is in a constant state of messiness. It’s also a time that I like to get my kiddos in the kitchen and help me make dinner and bake goodies. We all had fun baking these oh so delicious Strawberries and Cream Sugar Cookies.
These updated sugar cookies are frosted with a fresh strawberry butter cream frosting. Truly scrumptious and the secret ingredient is the sour cream. It makes it extra creamy and balances out the sweetness of the powdered sugar and strawberries.
Because of the sour cream these cookies need to be stored in the refrigerator. I’ll be honest, they are so much better chilled!
We make them to simply enjoy a different style of cookie, but how great would these be for a baby shower, bridal shower or a summer party?! You could even make them a little fancier and place a sliced strawberry right in the center.
