Copycat Swig Sugar Cookies

We were in the Swig Sugar Cookie zone. We were trying decide if we should get in the car and go down to the SWIG in Draper and get a cookie and a drink, or be ambitious and make our own.  

I found a few Swig Copycat Cookie recipes online and my daughter decided to try one of them. We both wished they had a little more flavoring or something, they were not super buttery, which we LOVE. I also love the taste of almond extract in sugar cookies. We would add a 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract or vanilla in this cookie batter next time. The icing has sour cream in it. It is super Yummy! But don’t forget to flavor it with some vanilla.
Here is the recipe for Swig Copycat Sugar Cookies we got from Vintage Revivals.


1/2 cup room temperature butter
3/4 C Sour Cream
3/4 t salt
1/4 C Milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar till thickened to your liking. 
A drop or two of Red Food Coloring for pink icing. 
Now time to let the little kids play with all of my Valentines sprinkles. I have dozens of them! 

I bought this pan last year to make sugar cookies with in different shapes. It is kind of hard to get the cookies out once you bake them though. I wasn’t happy with how they turned out. But it might be fun for just making candy melt candies in red and pink and white! 

These will be a lot prettier once the little girls get to decorate them! I have 2 little granddaughters aged 7 and 6 who are living with us right now while their new house is getting finished. It is so much fun hanging out with them! 
All the Fun sprinkle topping we can play with to add to the Swig Copycat Cookies! Whee! Enjoy!
