Recipe: Sour Cream Cookies

I had the pleasure of making cookies for my future sister-in-law’s wedding shower last Saturday. When I make cookies like this I tend to get VERY detailed. Ha ha! I had always wanted to make some cutesy cookies like this. The cookie cutters were just too adorable!

I have used the same cut-out cookie recipe my whole life! When you find a great recipe, no point in changing! The sour cream and nutmeg just add a very special element to the cookies.

Sour Cream Cookies
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 2/3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 cup sour cream

Heat oven to 425F. Mix shortening, margarine, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients. Divide dough into 3 equal parts. Roll each part 1/4 inch thick on lightly floured surface. Cut with 2-inch cookie cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until no imprint remains when touched lightly, 4 – 8 minutes. Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
