Homemade Sugar Cookies Recipe

I love quick and easy homemade cookie recipes. One of my favorite ones to make is sugar cookies but I don't always have the time to do cut-outs. Instead...I turn to drop-cookie recipes like the one that I'm sharing with all of you today. They are perfect for the holiday season!

Note: To make the sour milk - add 1 tsp. white vinegar to regular milk.

Homemade Drop Sugar Cookies Recipe

2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup butter, softened
3 large eggs
1 cup sour milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
5 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. cream of tartar

In a large mixing bowl cream together the granulated sugar with the softened butter; beat in the large eggs. In another large mixing bowl sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground nutmeg, ground cinnamon and the cream of tartar. Add the dry mixture to the creamed mixture alternating with the sour milk and vanilla extract. The dough will be soft.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Drop cookies by the heaping tablespoon onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 8-12 minutes or until done. I like very soft centers so I remove mine around 8 minutes and let them sit on the baking sheet out of the oven for 2 minutes to finish up before I move them to my wire rack to cool. Once cool, store in an airtight container.

These sugar cookies are definitely softer than the ones I usually make, but I am always willing to try another recipe. So after Christmas I shall try this recipe.
