How to make it

  • With a mixer on medium speed, cream butter and sugar together well.
  • Add eggs, sour cream, and extract, beating until well blended.
  • Add dry ingredients and mix together well with a wooden spoon; cover and chill dough for at least an hour.
  • Using about ¼ of the dough, roll dough out to ¼" thickness on a powdered sugar covered counter or board, using minimum amount of powdered sugar to prevent dough from sticking to counter or board. Using powdered sugar instead of flour will keep these cookies crisp and light.
  • Cut out into shapes with cookie cutters and place on lightly greased baking sheet about 2” apart.
  • If you prefer not to roll out the dough, you can roll pieces of dough into approximately 2” balls, place on lightly greased cookie sheet about 2” apart, and press down with the bottom of a lightly greased glass or your fingertips to flatten the balls to ¼” thickness.
  • Bake at 360 degrees until bottom is light brown, about 8 minutes.
  • Remove from cookie sheet and cool completely before frosting with powdered sugar frosting.
  • For turtle cookies, spread cookies with melted caramel (40 caramels melted with 2 tablespoons cream), then chocolate frosting, then top with pecan half or 4 pecan "feet" as shown in the picture.

    I now have a "Krumkake" file. I am going to whip up a batch of these this afternoon. I love that you added the citrus zest to the cookies and the frosting, too. I think that this makes the cookies taste richer in flavor. Thanks, Krum. I'll make these, eat them all and gain another pound with great happiness. Thanks for keeping me happy! Thanks for the recipe!!!..Annie

    These sound really good with the sour cream, the Carmel and pecans would be my favorite. And no Iam not tempted to come in the winter, even if you turn up the furnace. I think that is why you are the cookie queen, you need to stay close to the warm oven. hehehe
