These Old Fashioned Sour Cream Sugar Cookies are soft, thick, and cakelike, and they are slathered with creamy vanilla buttercream. They are perfect take-along cookies for parties and kids will love them, especially with added sprinkles. If you like those old-fashioned big fat sugar cookies like the ones Grandma made, you’ve come to the right place!
What kid doesn’t love to sneak a good sugar cookie from Grandma’s cookie jar! Back in the day, big, soft sugar cookies with lots of creamy frosting, filled lots of kitchen cookie jars. These cookies are similar to my Sour Cream Brown Butter Cookies. Both cookies are soft and thick and resemble tiny cakes with frosting. Both cookies also contain sour cream, which adds moisture to them.
