Fairy Cookies

Welcome to the eleventh post in my year-long Cookie Series, where I want to bring you a new and delicious recipe every Tuesday of 2015!

These may sound like they are going to be another unusual cookie, but they're really just sugar cookies with a different name. 

I'm not really sure why they're called "Fairy Cookies". A quick Google search showed me pictures of beautifully decorated cookies shaped like fairies, but nothing like the cookies I made. As far as I know, these cookies don't have anything to do with fairies. 

So, why not just call them "Sugar Cookies"? Ordinary sugar cookies are just, well, sugar cookies. But these sugar cookies have a different name. That makes them special. Special cookies taste good. 

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla 
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups flour

  1. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, sour cream and vanilla. Mix in the baking soda, salt and flour.
  2. Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes, or until slightly browned.

This recipe is adapted from Log Cabin Cooking, who credited it to a book called Oppis Guit's Vo Helvetia.
