Categories: Baked Goods, In Rotation

1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg yolk
1/3 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda  

Also need a cookie press.

Preheat oven 375F. Mix flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Set flour mixture aside.  Beat butter and sugar at medium speed until fluffy. Beat in egg yolk, sour cream, and vanilla at slow speed until blended.  Slowly add flour mixture at medium speed until well blended.  Add food coloring if desired.

Fill the press.  Squeeze cookies out onto cool ungreased cookie sheets.  Decorate with sprinkles, sugar, or non-pareils if desired. Cook 11 – 12 minutes. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet. Then remove to wire rack.  Store in airtight container once cooled. 

  Texture of dough may leave ragged spots where it releases from the press. These spots do not tend to soften on cooking.  Lightly smooth/press ragged areas with back of cool spoon, or finger prior to backing.

  If cookies harden within a day or two they were overcooked.
