Because no holiday cookie party is complete without sugar cookies cut into cool shapes. And because who doesn’t love pink icing that gets its color from cherry juice?

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup Dairy sour cream
  • 1sp vanilla
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • Healthy tsp of softened butter
  • 2 tbsp cherry juice
  • 2-4 tbsp milk or water


Beat sugar, butter, egg until fluffy. Beat in sour cream and vanilla until smooth. Gradually mix in dry ingredients, and form a ball. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Roll out, cut in shape of choice and bake 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Makes 7-8 dozen.

To make icing, combine powered sugar, vanilla, softened butter, cherry juice and milk or water.

(Note: add milk or water very carefully one at a time to desired consistency. You want this thick enough to hold on cookie.  If it gets too thin, just add a bit more powdered sugar. Too thick? add more cherry juice)
