White Wonders

The cyclist and I just spent a week, playing in the sun, with 40 of our favorite people.  Yep, 40.  Go ahead and count.

Going anywhere with our six blonde daughters brings a lot of attention (open mouthed stares).  Throw in another few dozen people and we were a traveling circus.

White Wonders have forever been my favorite sugar cookies.  They are sweet and soft and the cream cheese frosting makes them perfect.  It’s hard to eat just one.  But since I have four months until I need to squeeze my body into a bathing suit again…

White Wonders

recipe from my Kathy

  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 1/2 cups flour

Cream together sugar, shortening, sour cream, and egg.  Add vanilla.  Add dry ingredients and mix until combined.  Roll into balls and bake at 425 degrees F on a lightly greased baking sheet for 5 to 7 minutes.  They will be WHITE when done.

Frosting

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4-5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • milk to desired consistency

Blend until smooth and firm enough to frost cookies.

 It was so hard to leave paradise and return to 30 degree weather.  These cookies are easing the pain today.

    I adore red guriefrapts! I made a wonderful lemon curd bar earlier this year, where I substituted red grapefruit for the lemon juice and lemon zest. Just fab!
