 Usually when I want cookies, the first cookie that comes to mind, is a good chocolate chip cookie. But sometimes I want a non-chocolate cookie. But it still has to be chewy, crispy and buttery. This is that cookie. I’ve tried several recipes and came up with this one that I think may be my favorite sugar cookie so far…..for now…maybe….but I am still experimenting. This one is kinda like a snickerdoodle without the cinnamon. I love the crackles on the surface, don’t you? I get so excited when I see those!!!  This is not a sugar cookie made for rolling out and painting. This one is to stack on a fancy little plate and snack on…one right after the other. Stack and snack!! Hey, I like that…….I will call these Stack n Snack Sugar cookies. You just gotta make these. I promise you will love them and eat lots of them. Stack them high on your plate and chomp, chomp, chomp away!!!

Stack and Snack Sugar Cookies

2  3/4 cup flour
1  tsp baking powder
1/2  tsp baking soda
2 sticks of butter
1  1/2 cups sugar
1  egg
1  tsp vanilla
1  tablespoon of sourcream
1  tablespoon of milk

preheat oven to 350. In a mixer, cream the butter and the sugar. add the vanilla and egg. Mix till mostly smooth. Add the dry ingredients. add the sour cream and the milk. you should have a smooth soft dough. Roll into balls that are not too small but not big…..slightly bigger than an inch and a half. Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet, preferably. Bake for  6 minutes and then turn pan and bake for another 6 minutes or just till you notice the edges getting very light brown.  let cook on sheet. If you want to make bigger cookies, just increase baking time.

By the way, these make excellent ice cream sandwiches.
