cookie #16: old-fashioned sour cream cookies

i'm back in the kitchen and back to my betty crocker cooky book project! i've been baking my way...well rather selectively baking my way because i don't do most nuts, i hate raisins and coffee, but i'm getting distracted...

so i'm back with recipe #16, old-fashioned sour cream cookies.

-1/2 cup shortening (part butter or margarine)
-1 cup sugar
-1 egg
-1 tsp vanilla
-2 2/3 cups flour
-1 tsp baking powder
-1/2 tsp soda
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp nutmeg
-1/2 cup sour cream

heat oven to 425 degrees. mix shortening, sugar, egg and vanilla thoroughly. measure flour by dipping method or by sifting. blend dry ingredients; add to sugar mixture alternately with sour cream.

divide dough; roll out to 1/4" thick on well-floured surface. cut with 2" round cutter; place on greased baking sheet. sprinkle with sugar. bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. makes 4 to 5 dozen cookies.

recipe from betty crocker cookie book

my notes:
this is a really fabulous cookie! they are really yummy, super soft sugar cookies. i'm sure i will be making them often. and just a little personal tip, i rolled the first dozen out with flour as instructed in the recipe but then i switched to powdered sugar, which made them even more tender.
