Soft and Thick Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies with green frosting for Knowledge.  Love these!  Love, love, love these!  I love a good sugar cookie!  And they are easy to put together too which makes them even more loved!  They are from a blog called Homemade by Holman.  Thank you, thank you Holman, wherever you are for this recipe!

Cookies:

1 box white cake mix with pudding in the mix

2/3 cup flour

2 eggs

1/3 cup canola oil

2 tablespoons sour cream

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix together cake mix and flour.  Add eggs, oil and sour cream and mix until incorporated.  Batter will be stiff.  Use a cookie scoop or roll into 1″ balls and bake on cookie sheets lined with parchment.  Use the heel of your hand or a glass dusted with sugar to gently flatten cookies to about 1/2″ thick.  Bake about 10 minutes until just set.  Let cool 1 minute on pan before removing.

Frosting:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

2 tablespoons heavy cream

1 tablespoon vanilla

3 – 4 cups powdered sugar

1 tablespoon meringue powder (optional)

food coloring or sprinkles as desired

Beat butter on medium for 2 minutes until smooth.  Add cream and vanilla and beat 1 more minute to incorporate.  Add sugar, 1 cup at a time, mixing on low until incorporated and you reach the desired consistency.  Add meringue powder if using.  Frosting should be fairly thick.
