Twinkle, twinkle tennis stars cookies
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter (at room temperature)
1/4 cup sour cream
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Stir together flour and salt in a small bowl. Beat together sugar, butter, sour cream, egg and vanilla in a medium bowl until creamy and smooth (about two minutes). Stir in flour mixture. Shape into a disk, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for several hours, or overnight. When ready to make cookies, heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease two baking sheets. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/3-inch thickness. Cut out stars with cookie cutters (star shaped preferred). Re-roll scraps and cut out more cookies until all dough is used. Place on greased sheets, spacing to 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown at the edges. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
