More About This Recipe

  • One of my mom's family heirloom recipes is a from-scratch sour cream pound cake. It’s so moist and dense, and a favorite of all ages. Using Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies, I was able to create a pretty good pound cake of my own, and I added lemon and blueberries, one of my husband's favorite combinations. This would be great paired with fresh berries and whipped cream. It’s classic yet modern, and will never go out of style.
