Fall is here which means baking season is too. Warm up your kitchen with these dreamy, cake-like cookies made with Westby Creamery sour cream. They’re perfectly delicious and will have you reaching for more than one.

When putting this together, your dough should be a mix of cake batter and traditional cookie dough. An electric mixer is recommended to fully incorporate all the ingredients.Sour Cream-Dream Cookies made with Westby Creamery sour cream



  • ½ cup Westby sweet cream butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 16 oz of vanilla frosting


  • Food coloring
  • Sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar on high until creamy.
  3. Add eggs, vanilla and sour cream and beat until smooth.
  4. Add baking soda and baking powder and mix until combined. Add flour and beat on low until no white remains – dough will be soft, almost like cake batter.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop heaping tablespoonfuls onto baking sheet 2-3 inches apart and bake for 10-12 minutes. Edges should be golden, and centers set when finished.
  6. Let cookies cool before frosting and enjoy!
