First lady Melania Trump is sharing a recipe straight from the White House to your own house. Try this simple recipe that makes approximately three dozen cookies sure to impress your family and friends!

Check out the full step-by-step guide below. 

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoons baking soda
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 egg yolks
1 egg white
2 tablespoons sour cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine flour and baking soda. Set aside.

Beat butter and sugar until blended. Add egg yolks, egg white and sour cream. Beat until smooth.

Beat in flour mixture until dough just comes together.

Form into two disks, wrap in plastic and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 350 F. Roll out one disk on floured wax paper with a floured rolling pin to 1/8-inch thickness.

Using a star cookie-cutter, cut out star shapes and place on a wax-paper-lined baking sheet. Repeat with second disk.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly golden.

Slide cookies onto a cooling rack and cool. Use colorful icing to make the stars your own.
