You really have to add 5-6 cups of flour so it isn't sticky. It ended up tasting like flour or bread dough. Perhaps less sour cream might help?

I LOVE this recipe. It made PERFECT sugar cookies. I made the mistake of doubling the recipe before I knew the yield and ended up with 250 cookies before I finally threw the dough away but they are all gone. I gave them as presents and the rest were eaten. I couldn't stay out of them. I would say the yield for one recipe is about 100 cookies if you add enough flour for them not to be sticky. I would recommend using wax paper when rolling them out so you don't end up tasting mostly flour when you eat them because I had to add almost 6 cups of flour after the recipe was mixed just to keep the dough from sticking on my hands. I grew up with a woman that owned her own baking business and these are by far the best sugar cookies I have ever had. Also if you are looking for a very easy glaze for these cookies I would take one cup of powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp. vanilla, and a tablespoon or two of milk and mix it together. It makes the perfect glaze and sets up really well. The tablespoon of milk won't be enough so keep adding a TBSP until it is the consistency that you want. Thank you for sharing this with us kelleywood!

Fast, no chilling required of dough before cutting out! Puffed up beautifully and not one of them broke. Love it! I rolled them really thin and got over 6 dozen!
