  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 1/4 cups flour*
  • 1/2 tsp salt*

  • 5 to 10 tsp. milk
  • 3/4 tsp. cocoa powder*
  • 2 drops yellow food coloring
  • 1 jar (12 oz) cherry preserves

*These ingredients can be found in our store.

 
Instructions
 
Mix all cookie ingredients together with a hand or stand mixer. Roll out 1/4″ thick, cut with round cookie cutters. Bake at 350 for 8 min. Allow to cool completely.
 
For frosting, cream butter until light and fluffy. Beat in powdered sugar, vanilla, and enough milk to achieve piping consistency. Tint frosting with cocoa powder and yellow food coloring. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag or fit a pastry bag with a #4 piping tip.
 
Spread cherry preserves over cookies to within 1/4″ of the edges. Pipe lines across the top of each cookie, forming a lattice. To do this, pipe five evenly space lines lengthwise across the top of the cookies, then pipe five more lines widthwise across the cookies. Pipe frosting around the top edge of each cookie in a small zig-zag pattern to make a fluted edge.
