Sugar Cookies, always willing to try a new recipe. This one comes from Martha Stewart.  These cookies are called Giant Sugar Cookies.  The recipe makes 10 pretty big cookies.  I used my regular cookie scoop and got a few more cookies.  I rolled in bright rainbow sprinkles.  The cookies are crispy on the edge and chewy in the middle. 
2 cups flour, spooned and leveled
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 stick of room temperature butter,  8 TBSP
1 1/2 cups sugar plus more for sprinkling
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line your baking sheet with parchment paper
In a large mixing bowl add the dry ingredients together and whisk together.   In another mixing bowl add the butter and sugar and mix until light and fluffy.   2 to 4 minutes.  Add the egg and the vanilla.  Mix.   With the mixer on low speed add half of the flour mixture, the add the sour cream.   Then add the remaining flour mixture.   Mix just until smooth.  Dough will be stiff.  Make sure to get to the bottom of the mixing bowl, you may have to mix by hand.   The recipe says they only get 10 cookies, they will be hugh.  I used my cookie scoop that holds about 2 TBSP of dough and got 25 cookies.   Adjust your baking time to the size of the cookies.   You can sprinkle with sugar or use colored sprinkles.   I got 25 "3" inch cookies.
