1 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp sour cream (make sure it’s not too “liquidy”)
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp baking powder
1 egg yolk from a large egg
Cream sugar and butter in a deep bowl.Add egg yolk and vanilla extract. Mix until everything is well-blended
Add sour cream and mix again. I think sour cream added some moisture to these cookies and prevented them from becoming very hard.
Add flour, baking powder and salt.Mix everything.
The batter will start to curdle and look odd… that’s perfectly normal… you haven’t done anything wrong
When the curdling happens, it’s time to use your hands to start mixing until you form a ball of cookie dough
Roll this dough between 2 sheets of wax paper.Bake these cookies at 180 C degrees for 8 minutes and then rotate your tray and bake for another 5 minutes.
Your baking times may vary depending on the thickness of your cookies.
When cookies done remove and keep on wire rack to cool.
