Cookies deliver sweet text messages

Might as well rise to the occasion. The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast in Millersburg, Ohio, has the step-by-step directions to make your valentine gets the message and eats it too (You’ll want to use the “glossary” at the bottom).

This Valentine’s Day let the Sour Cream Cookies score you brownie points.


  • 1 C. Sour Cream
  • 2 C. sugar
  • 1 C. butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. soda
  • 5 1/2 C. flour

The process:

Cream together sour cream, sugar and butter.  Add eggs and vanilla.  In a separate bowl mix together the baking powder, soda, and flour then add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture.   Chill for two hours or overnight.  To roll out, use plenty of flour on counter.  Roll to 1/4″ thick or slightly thicker.  Cut out shapes and place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for approximately 12 minutes until done.  Test by touching the center of the cookie.  If it leaves an indentation, they are not quite done. Remove from oven before edges brown.

These are best if they are baked just until done and iced with your favorite icing.

    I really like the idea that send “Valentine’s Day Brings Sweet Text Messages” to lover, it is very sweet and meaningful! Also, I like the idea that write glossaries on cookies that each glossary has its profound meaning, such as AML-All my love, CUIMD – See you in my dreams, these are really lovely for valentine’s day’s gift, I would love to follow this idea and make these beautiful message to my BF for next 2/14! :)
