I’m so sad to say this is the last cookie in the Countdown! I love this series. I work on it all year long. I try so hard to find cookies that are a little different from the usual holiday standards, but just as (or more!) delicious. During my testing this year I went through more butter, sugar and flour than you could possibly imagine — at one point I was going through it so quickly I had to start storing the packages in my garage! (My very, very cold garage.)
My neighbors and family also love this series. They are my willing taste testers all year long. They know me so well it’s no big deal to tell me they don’t like something, or that it’s just okay. One of my sweet neighbors is not a baker. She asked me to include something easy that she could make, but not something that looked like she took some help from the store.
I came up with these, which start with a packaged sugar cookie mix, but you would never know. The addition of the sour cream makes them more like those soft Lofthouse frosted sugar cookies you can buy in the bakery section of the grocery store. Topped with a brown sugar-cinnamon streusel and glaze, these are a delicious coffee cake in cookie form.
Easy. Pretty. Delicious. It doesn’t get much better than that, right?
