This recipe uses:


  • 1 cup Bison Sour Cream
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3-1/2 cups flour, plus extra for rolling


  • Step 1

    Using a stand mixer, beat sugar, butter, Bison Sour Cream, egg, and baking soda until combined. Mix in vanilla and nutmeg.

  • Step 2

    Gradually beat in flour. Dough should be neither too dry nor too sticky. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour, or overnight.

  • Step 3

    Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Step 4

    On a lightly-floured surface, roll the dough to 1/8" thickness and cut using your favorite cookie cutters. Remove shapes with spatula and transfer to prepared baking sheet.

  • Step 5

    Bake for 8 minutes, until they just begin to brown around the edges. Carefully transfer baked cookies to wax paper and allow to cool completely before frosting. Then simply frost, decorate, serve, and enjoy!
